2002 - The Safest Place (11 song CD)

Listen for "My Sins" on college radio.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Invisible Downtown formed in October 1999 when four Harvard students found they shared the same passion for fun, high-energy rock. Completed with the 2001 addition of singer Tim Blane, the quintet exploded onto the Boston scene, scoring gigs opening for bands like the Verve Pipe and local favorites the Push Stars. With the completion of their debut album, The Safest Place, the band has entered into the next stage of success. Although the record did not hit the street until August 2002, its songs were already being traded by fans and garnering college radio airplay by midsummer.

Driven by the synergy of the Bell/Blane/Palmer songwriting team, IDT, as the group has come to be known by fans, has produced a collection of striking, unusual songs that still manages to be, as one critic wrote, "impossibly catchy." From the focused modern rock punch of "My Sins" to the classic anthem twang of "You're Gone," Invisible Downtown maintains a depth and richness that strikes a chord with their listeners. However, describing IDT as simply a collection of brainy artists couldn't be further from the truth. The band consistently reminds listeners that - put simply - rock is fun, and leaves their fans not only wowed, but also smiling.

In short, IDT's smart songwriting and intense, tightly knit live show has already earned it a reputation as one of Boston's premier up-and-coming bands.
