Liverpool’s The Little Secrets are Kevin Dixon and Stacy Jo. Formed in 2010 after meeting at Liverpool’s world famous Cavern Club, Stacy was singing with another band when Kevin spotted her. Blown away by her talent, Kevin decided on the spot to ‘steal’ Stacy for his new project, and after two years of writing together and experimenting with different line-ups and sounds, the pair found their sound in infectious pop, echoing the likes of Camera Obscura and BMX Bandits with a nod to Phil Spector’s production style.
The single was released on 26th January 2015 by Edge Hill University’s The Label Recordings.
And this single highlights the great sound of The Little Secrets. There are elements of synth pop but also some classic pop sounds and for me this includes some influences from the 50s / 60s resulting in a brilliant, vibrant song.
The song opens with great drumming and has a really nice guitar chug followed by a great jangly riff. The vocals are brilliant and the song has a great groove. The drumming provides a solid rhythm and there’s some great jangly guitar tones too with just a hint of distortion in places to add a nice edge.
