Nostalgic and tenderly sad, but with a whole lot of energy, listening to The Secret Album feels like Aaron Maine is reading his old diary to me. It’s youthful and reminiscent – a peek into his life pre-Porches. Though with a name like Sex God, don’t worry no one is taking themselves too seriously here.
The song “Diner on 9th” has been dancing on my tongue since Shari Heck teased it a few weeks ago. This ditty is stuck in my head in the most gentle way. It’s just been released as part of “Punctual” – a bubbly song trio.
What’s in the bottle?
Just coke from the store
Lyra Will is the guitar and harrowing voice of Tamara Lunn. Her first album is bittersweet both in structure and the individual songs. Each piece feels like the teetering moment between leaving your past behind and tentatively embracing a new future. The depth of feeling invoked in each word carries through to the finish, when the triumphant We Kissed in Slow Motion takes a decisive baby step forward.
