Secret Cities’ new single [released on Western Vinyl] finds them interpreting the work of one of their favorite songwriters (Ellie Greenwich) with “You Don’t Know”, and then embracing her aesthetic for their own ecstatic, trippy take on the girl group sound with “On Holiday.”
“Secret Cities began with 4-track cassette tapes flying through the mail back and forth between the Easternmost to the Westernmost borders of North Dakota. MJ Parker and Charlie Gokey were barely 15 when they met at band camp, but a shared love of psychedelia and scads of secret, unheard songs between them drew the pair together. Many years later, after the addition of drummer Alex Abnos Secret Cities has emerged with a cocktail of Spector-esque doe-eyed romanticism, electronic flourishes indebted to minimalist composers like Terry Riley, the noisy, art damaged sensibilities of late psych groups like The United States of America.”
