09.15.13 — “Slowmotion” by Secret Fix

Secret Fix

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Slowmotion” by Secret Fix (2013, from the “Slowmotion” digital download)

Secret Fix is a shoegaze five-piece from Kettering, England. I know literally nothing about them. So far as I can tell, they formed in 2012 and haven’t released anything other than the three free downloads that they have available from their soundcloud page.

I discovered this band while I was wandering around soundcloud, and I was kind of blown away by tonight’s song. The guitar sound is vaguely reminiscent of the new My Bloody Valentine, and I’m sure that’s exactly what Secret Fix were aiming for. At least with this song. On another one of their songs (“Kissy Kiss”), I’m reminded of late-era Jesus and Mary Chain. And I’m sure that’s what they were aiming for there.

Anyway, here’s their MBV-esque “Slowmotion”.

I love that amid the squall and the feedback, and the tiny bits of white noise, there’s a clean acoustic guitar. It’s such a nice touch. And the vocals are clean and hushed.

I love the part at 3:38 when it strips down to that one warbly guitar and the drums. Nice.

I’ve just listened to this song about six times, and I’m not getting tired of it. Listen to it. Download it for free. Just enjoy the music.
