Secret Colours – “It Can’t Be Simple”

on January 22, 2014

“It Can’t Be Simple”

Folding in elements of psychedelic rock and all its wild derivatives (that organ riff could invoke the Beach Boys or Smash Mouth, take your pick), “It Can’t Be Simple” is more than a nostalgic homage. And don’t let the “u” fool you– with bass lines that scream analog worship and some well-placed spasmodic descents into fuzz, Secret Colours is all Chicago.

“It Can’t Be Simple” is a track off the four-piece group’s upcoming EP, “Positive Distractions Part I,” due out in February.
