Secret Cities - From Fargo with fantabula.

I was just reading that Secret Cities is playing Toronto this week at NXNE (June 17th and 18th), and word has it of some rumored upcoming dates in Europe. Pretty exciting stuff for a band from Fargo, North Dakota - but then, why not?

Secret Cities is, in a word, wonderful. They've been making inroads of late, with a very infectious blend of Experimental, Indie and Alternative and getting good word of mouth going. And, as has been the case with most bands going this route, playing everywhere they can in order to get the word out. And so far it's been working just fine, having gotten some very good reaction to the recent SXSW festival.

Tonight it's a track off their new album Love Crime. Chasing Shadows is a nice slice of sonic tapestry that is a spot-on introduction to the band if you aren't already familiar with them.

Hopefully in the coming days/weeks there will be some live stuff available from them at NXNE and I will be more than happy to share them with you. Fingers crossed.

But in the meantime, check them out and crank this one up. Dreamy is the word you're looking for.
