There's something kind of lo-fi about this song and the video, specifically the video. I wish I knew more about the lo-fi movement so that I could actually make the determination that this is or is not an actual entry into that category but I digress... Secret Lynx is a band from San Diego and has been making a name for themselves around the area. This reminds me a lot of the psychedelica of the late 70s/early 80s. The Blue Oyster Cult or The Alan Parsons Project type of band. It works because it's a damn good song.
From the slow, easy progression of the song and Ronnie Dudek's vocals - this is a solid example of good indie rock. It's just wraps you up and holds you in warm blanket of sound. It's nostalgic but it's current and it's on point with where music is right now. It's got enough of that old school vibe to make it reminiscent of something you remember from a different time in your life but it's still new and innovative.
I could easily see them on tour with a band like Portugal. The Man or Deerhunter and they would be welcomed with open arms by the fan base. I want to know more about these guys. They've got a four track EP out and this is the second single from it. Ronnie's voice is magic. It has an amazing emotive quality to it and it's hearty enough to stand up to the instrumentation of the tracks. I think that it's easy to get caught up in the magic that they're creating. This is solid work and I hope they get a ton of recognition for the work they're putting in. You can get the EP from iTunes or Amazon
