New Release: SECRETTES – Sainthood
Website / Facebook / Twitter / Bandcamp / Soundcloud
Toronto’s once boy-girl-fronted (now husband-wife-fronted) electro-pop quartet SECRETTES dropped their sophomore EP effort Sainthood on the masses last week at the band’s bi-monthly artist showcase series POP WITH BRAINS at The Rivoli.
Written/recorded/produced by SECRETTES frontman Adymm Ender, mixed by Laurence Currie at Sunnyside Studios, and mastered by Peter Letros at Wreckhouse Mastering, the new EP takes a page out of the ROBYN book of euro-pop and additionally tosses in a really dark ambiance amongst the mix.
Lyrically, Sainthood is MUCH darker than the band’s self-titled debut, though this might not be readily apparent as the vocals are obviously layered amongst the catchy pop anthems.
Things also get much more interesting synth+electronic-wise this time around; again harking back to that layered euro-pop aspect, so while they could easily do a stage show at a venue, a raving club gig wouldn’t necessarily be out the question either – check it out in the embed below.
SECRETTES are set to make their next Toronto appearance at NXNE with a 1AM slot at The Painted Lady on June 15, 2012 – if you can’t make that one though, they’ll still be in town for a gig at The Comfort Zone on June 22nd.
