Texas-based synth-pop duo Secrecies premiered “Life We Live,” the soaring opener to their upcoming self-titled album, via GroundSounds and Vents Magazine.

Awash in towering, reverb-drenched production, “Life We Live” is a prime example of the connected interplay between Shawn Magill and Joey Noga across their debut LP, Secrecies, which arrives on June 7th, 2019 via Idol Records.

“Light and airy with an underlying intensity,” GroundSounds writer Jake Craney writes, “A unique mood [that] compels you to keep pressing play.”

“A track that wraps itself in a whole dreamy vibe,” Vents editor RJ Frometa praised, adding Secrecies “recalls acts like Of Monsters and Men and Arcade Fire.”

By complete happenstance, Shawn Magill and Joey Noga met at a Cashmere Cat concert at Dallas venue Deep Ellum in 2017. They instantly connected over their obsession with sexy, synth heavy electro pop and formed Secrecies shortly after. Together, their multi-layered chilling harmonies unite over playful pulses, evoking the heartaches and joys of passing youth. They have performed with Alice Merton, Handsome Ghost, Armors, Swimming With Bears, Wilsen, Geneva Jacuzzi, Bad Bad Hats, Night Drive, Nite Jewel and more. Their debut album, SECRECIES, will be released on June 7th, 2019 via Idol Records.

“‘Hole in my Heart’ really feels like the full experience, as if every scintilla of noise was wrung from the machines and a chorus that has extracted the same from the humans. Could be St. Etienne at their ‘Like A Motorway’ pomp and, for that reason and many more, we should celebrate a song so immediate it could turn a bad day around.”  — Kevin Hugger, mp3hugger
