Secret Colours – Secret Colours (2010) review
their liquifying nature and structure, Secret Colours does not lose the
conceptual flow, nor the psychic development and energy necessary to
move and shift within the band’s hauntingly profound and compelling
neo-psychedelic ebb and flow … a flow that shimmers with delight,
giving a modern take on what a historic lysergic adventure would have
been like, in this, an almost acid-free culture and time.
paced tracks overlay those of a slower nature seamlessly, unfolding with
mild overtones of surf, sun, sand and heady libations. Oddly
compelling are the soft spoken lyrics that go down easy, giving each
song a sense of urgency and displacement, creating a dream like
mesmerizing atmosphere of nostalgic honesty and magical delight … one
filled with fuzzed out guitars, lingering instrumentals, along with a
presentation that is worth drawing the blinds, and setting aside all
else that’s going on in the world.
