My confidence is given out sparingly, though I can think of no other band more deserving of this faith than The Wet Secrets. Remember their name, kids. These guys are going above and beyond. Although I’ve never been given the privilege of seeing them perform, longtime fan Chloe Collins assured me they’re a force to be reckoned with.
“They’re an extremely talented group and every time I’ve seen them perform, they never fail to impress! Wicked costumes too!”
After being dared to form a band in 2005, members of The Wet Secrets found their calling almost seemingly by accident. 2 albums later, the daring group of five delivered Free Candy to the world and this sweet tooth couldn’t be happier. An appealing mixture of dream pop and indie rock, each track is an expression of uncontained dedication to their craft. Lyle Bells vocals are versatile and he wields the axe with finesse, crooning lyrics that will take you back to the jukebox you never had. The sound design speaks for itself, boasting a rich mix of trombone (Emma Frazier), trumpet (Kim Rackel), and congas (Paul Arnusch). Two tracks in particular stood out to me, Floating in the Sky and Sunshine easily solidifying my love for the band within seconds of playing. Delightfully memorable and never dull, it will take more than a pinkie promise to keep The Wet Secrets back.
