Taken from Forthcoming Album POSITIVE DISTRACTIONS: 5th May
“When you watch the video for totally psychedelic single, Into You, you might feel a little hazy. The song a bass-heavy funk jam (and) the visual for it is like being trapped inside an acidic fever dream.” – CMJ
Secret Colours mix 90’s British indie influences with a Black Angels-esque sound and flourishes of 60’s garage and infectious psychedelic organ. It’s an alternative rock sound with a clear pop sensibility. The Chicago 4-piece recently played SXSW and are back in Austin for the Psychfest in May.
On 5th May they release their third album Positive Distractions. The album’s first teaser track It Can’t Be Simple premiered on the Stereogum (“staccato organ, snappy bass, and crisp drums combine to pack a wallop” – Stereogum) with the second Into You’s psychedelic party video premiering on the CMJ website. Positive Distractions follows Secret Colours’ last album Peach (2013) which Louder Than War called “quite simply one of the best psych-pop records you’ll hear” while including it in their ‘Albums of the Year’ list.
Secret Colours self-release Positive Distractions on Monday 5th May on CD, Vinyl, Cassette and Download.
