    SECRET SHINE
    It’s always the people in between, the ones who straddle genres, that make the most exciting music. So even as Secret Shine in their guitars, in their harmonies echo the sound we call shoegaze, the drift we call dreampop, they bring a level of pop smarts to their music that few of their sonic contemporaries can touch.
     
    On the strength of last year’s reissue of Untouched comes Secret Shine’s new album „There Is Only Now“, on Saint Marie Records, the most vital dreampop label in the world today. Back in the early 90’s Secret Shine got snatched up by seminal indiepop label Sarah Records, because Sarah could hear the hooks in the haze, the vitality in the vocals, so much more than a trend, so much more than a sound. It’s obvious Secret Shine grew up in love with pop, in love with ABBA, in love with the Smiths.

    ENDLICH BLÜTE
    Endlich Blüte stellen schon mit ihrem Opener fest, dass sie keine Macht haben, dass sie bestimmt werden von Schwerkraft, Emotionen, der Außenwelt. Formulierungen im Passiv sind fester Bestandteil der Texte, die sich in lakonisch noisigem Gitarrenpop, viel Hall und schönen Jangle-Gitarren entfalten. Auf den ersten Blick passt die treibende Musik so gar nicht zu den Texten, auf den zweiten umso mehr: Der lockere Umgang mit Kummer und Scheitern wirkt beruhigend, kann neue und alte Wunden heilen. Endlich Blüte bleiben unverklemmt und unkitschig, das Glück wird in kleinen Dingen gesucht. Vielleicht bleiben sie deshalb so gut im Ohr und man trägt sie wie ein kleines Stückchen Trost tagelang mit sich herum. Zum gelegentlichen Knabbern.
