EP: Secret Weapons - Secret Weapons

Secret Weapons EP

Secret Weapons - Something New (Haerts Remix)

Info: Brooklyn based electro-pop and funk duo Secret Weapons (Danny Rocco and Gerry Lange) have just released their debut eponymous EP before touring across the States with Phoebe Ryan, Weezer, Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy. 

Above track (remixed by fellow New Yorker Haerts) 'Something New' is addictive and unashamedly (in a fully working sense) laying on tons of pop synths and sounds, the gospel inspired chorus, simple chord progression and vocaliser adding to the fun, happiness abounds! The opening track 'Power' is also firmly in the same mould, with an intro reminiscent of Survivor's 'Eye of the Tiger', the music spirals chaotically with lush funk á la Prince and pure pop anthemic choruses, highly enjoyable.

Third track 'Konichiwild' is loaded with thumping pop hooks and breaks, a bizarre yet fully palatable concoction of late 90's dance, contemporary electropop (M83) and slivers of indie servings in the mould of The Killers Hot Fuss, weird, but isn't it wonderful, music I can stick on, enjoy and not care about anything to.
