Secrets For September: Insert Title Ear album review
Impressive debut from this English three-piece.
Secrets For September have been described as ‘Pink Floyd meets Pentangle’, and while this description is misleading (no airy folk prog here), it is accurate in the sense that the band have one foot in the cosmic camp, yet are very much grounded on an emotional, earthy level. Working as a three-piece in the studio, with Matthew North (guitar/bass/keyboards) joined by drummer Michael Soundy and impressive vocalist Ellie Taylor, the band display confidence and some impressive material on this full-length debut album. Of the seven tracks here, the three longest (clocking in at just under 10 minutes apiece) are also the best.
