London’s art-rock quartet Pace return with the release of their vibrant new single ‘Strange Secrets‘, out now via AWAL.
Combining sweeping guitars with colourful synths and vintage piano tones, Pace are able to create a sound that is both playful and undeniably infectious. Frontman Jamie Ley’s impassioned baritone soars effortlessly over the eclectic instrumental flourishes, whilst the quartet’s tightly woven harmonies chime in perfectly. Co-written by Justin Young (The Vaccines) and produced by Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, Foals), ‘Strange Secrets’ is about having the confidence to stand up for yourself and confront someone, even though it may be difficult. “Losing trust in someone can mess with your mind, but we want people to feel empowered when they listen to the track,” Jamie elaborates. “It’s about not being afraid to make tough choices, especially if everything seems weird. You gotta know that things will get better!”
