UPDATE: Just found out that Saint Marie Records still have a very few copies of the ultra ltd Clear with Glitter Vinyl in stock (only 50 copies worldwide..) Get that HERE while available!  Also found the album on Spotify, added underneath.

Have you ever wondered what My Bloody Valentine would sound like if they had brought the attitude from “Feed Me With Your Kiss” and “You Made Me Realise” into the Loveless-era?  We Need Secrets may very well provide the answer to that riddle!

Hailing from Nova Scotia, Canada, Chad Peck is usually found in the indie-rock group Kestrels, but has (secretly?) been toying with this solo-project for a few years now. After releasing a couple of  7″ singles and a demo tape, We Need Secrets is releasing the debut-album “Melancholy and the Archive” on August 19th through Noyes Records. The album is mixed by Ringo Deathstarr’s Elliott Frazier, who also guest appears on the album. The production is crisp, full of surprises, and there are enough swirling, fuzzy guitars in here to make you light headed and dizzy (in a good way).  This one really blew my mind, that’s for sure!


Impose Magazine only premiered the first single of the album yesterday entitled “Melancholy”, but I threw in an earlier version of the track “The Archive” (taken from a split 7″ from 2012) to give you a second treat.  Please note that the rework for the album is by far superior to this version!
