What would west coast pop art experimentalism sound like filtered through an industrial midwest prism? No clue, but perhaps Secret Colours can shine some light on that. The newly minted Chicago quintet channels the finest in the greats of late '60s psychedelia, '90s newgaze reverence, and a touch of driving, bucolic, no frills RnR straight from the greasiest of garages. Secret Colours at their most beautiful help you to turn on, tune in, and drop out. Secret Colours are bad dudes, and in a day and age where Anton Newcombe is making dance beats and Syd Barrett was long assimilated by the Borg, Secret Colours are a Kodachrome tinted breath of fresh air.
Secret Colours are Tommy Evans, Dave Stach, Dylan Olson, Justin Frederick, and Margaret Albright. They release their eponymous effort independently on August 3rd, and may be stopping near you this summer to fold your brain into an origami fortune teller. The fortune teller says to keep a watchful eye on Secret Colours.
