If you’re the type of person who has a crying in the club playlist (no hate if you are, we’ve all been there), then you must listen to the latest single from Callie Reiff and Kaeyra. “Heart Ain’t Safe” is a soaring dance track that dances between the lines of different genres: electronic, pop, and indie. It combines Callie’s signature “indie-club” sound, which she describes as a fusion of “pop/indie-forward vocals and New York club energy production” with Kaeyra’s soulful vocals. It represents another bold progression in Callie’s already impressive string of singles this year. Callie elaborates,
“Heart Ain’t Safe” is about that one person who is always in the back of your mind. Wherever you are at, you know if they were there you would ditch the party to be with them. I tried to mimic the lyrics with a somewhat dark feeling bassline, intense drums, and an energy that makes you want to be in the middle of a dark rave dancing with all of your friends.
From musical prodigy to industry trendsetter, Callie Reiff is unlike any other. As an accomplished producer, DJ, and all-around performer, she has made history as the youngest DJ to perform at Webster Hall. She has since taken the stage at festivals such as Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, and Ultra and has also provided direct support for world-renowned acts. Now at 21, Callie has aligned herself at the intersection of indie-pop and electronic. The sky’s the limit for her career as she continues to reveal the next era of her burgeoning career.
“Heart Ain’t Safe” is the ultimate “I’m trying to live my life but all I can think about is you” track. There’s a yearning built into the tempo, but there’s also a commanding club vibe mixed in between everything else. It’s filled with pulsating basslines, hypnotizing beats, and intoxicating vocals. It’s impossible not to groove a little bit while listening to “Heart Ain’t Safe.” There’s definite control in the layering of the production, giving way to a dance night beat. And you’re probably not going to get away without thinking about that certain someone as you pay attention to the lyrics. It really is the perfect song for crying in the club.
