As time goes on, so musical genres become less and less clear. Describing bands or even individual tracks with one or two words (punk, rock 'n' roll, disco) is about as antiquated as CDs (it's digital or streaming for your ears, vinyl for the shelf at home nowadays, kids!). Secrets For September's new single 'If I Need'? We might as well go for prog-indie-folk-rock, traces of all are added to the mix resulting in something of a guilty pleasure.
The south-west collective seem to exist in a bubble of their own, one where your dad's record collection is reevaluated and given a dreampop spin. It's been over 40 years since much that could be considered prog as been genuinely cool - some people just call it post-rock these days as it's still a dirty word - but Secrets For September don't care, and neither should you. It's a welcome change from four skinny blokes with guitars failing badly at being trendy, so it's worth it for that alone.
