“A stunning composition with a memorable chorus and excellent measured rhythm of the narration. -Safe to consume- song is one of the few, which personifies calm and harmony. Very melodic, gently and easily listened. Magnificent example of high-quality Dream Pop sound.”

Vincent Liou releases his vivid, sensational music video for his lonesome and desolate indie-pop single, “Safe to Consume”
JULY 23RD, 2021 – Directed by Torin Dinh, Arizona-based artist Vincent Liou released his third official music video of 2021 for his track “Safe to Consume”, which is also the third song on his four-track EP titled ‘Big Surf’.
“Safe to Consume”
Inspired by John Mayer’s notorious “New Light” music video, “Safe to Consume” was filmed at a house and dirt road by the mountains in Phoenix, Arizona with the intention of creating a comical yet sensational song on the Internet. Despite the minor hiccups – including the car's window being too tinted and not being able to film any shots looking into the car – the music video production all worked out better than expected.
The primary narrative behind “Safe to Consume” is all about never giving up on your relationships or goals, and trying to better oneself. There are times in life when you go through ups-and-downs, but knowing that you're doing the best you can should always be enough. In essence, the song was written about the notion of taking a look at all your current struggles and obstacles in your life – whether it be vices or personal shortcomings – and saying, "I believe in myself, I can do this."
While the song is an indie-pop track at its core, the song was written with pop-punk influences from bands such as blink-182 and State Champs. In the song, Vincent Liou sang in the vocal range that was closest to his speaking voice to provide a pleasurable break from the other songs on the Big Surf EP, which are sung in relatively higher ranges.
Vincent wrote the lyrics with tongue in cheek to remind his fans that while life is unpredictable, you’ll be fine as long as you keep going and have a good moral compass. “Safe to Consume” was created as a self-reminder and proclamation to the world that whenever you face rejection or feel like a failure, you should listen to this song and remember that you are enough – always.
“When you have a shot that requires you to see the inside of the car, make sure the windows aren't tinted.”
