“Peach” by Secret Colours
Secret Colours says the following about themselves: Secret Colours revel in being the bastard seed of the ’60s psychedelia and ’90s Britpop bloodlines. Truly, they know who they are, because that description fits their sophomore release, Peach, perfectly. The foursome from Chicago somehow manage to evoke Oasis, Then Jerico, The Beatles and The Doors in a mishmash of the two genres – something that you’d think shouldn’t work, and yet, it does. Some of their songs lean more ‘90s Britpop – “Blackbird (Only One)” and “World Through My Window” (which has an incredible jam session mid-song) in particular – while others swing more towards ‘60s psychedelic rock, such as “Freak” and “Faust.” This is a great album for a summer party – pick up the drink of your choice and just start moving to the beat!
