Secrets for September from the South West of England engage us with their new release The Festival EP that comes in at just over twenty minutes that follows on from their previous release Dub Matter What It Is.
The quartet has just been complimented by a new vocalist Ellie Taylor having replaced Marina O'Shea; one would guess that this release is a way of introducing her to fans both old and new. The EP is made up of versions of the first four Secret singles. I'm not going to compare the two vocalists as in all honest they are not a million miles away from each other in style.
Secrets for September for the main part have married the sounds of Floyd with All About Eve. The vocal presentation is passionate as is the accompanying music that covers a multitude of approaches. We hear the opening track To Behold pricking the ears with it spacey soundscapes, laid back soirees that tantalize and tease, offering harmony, fragility and passion as does Upside Down; the Keyboard and guitar working in perfect harmony, a theme throughout this release.
Traces see's the band tonally moving into another arena offering a vibrancy that called to mind The Walkabouts and Reflections offers a more rock orientated approach; In saying that the basic fundamental structure of the music never travels too far from its point of origin; what it does do though is offer enough diversity to keep things fresh and interesting.
Track List: 1. To Behold
2. Upside Down
