Really feeling this newie from Secrets, a solo project from Christchurch, NZ's Fraser Austin. Packed with synth sentiment, this track displays its heart-on-sleeve in a shy, Sarah Records kind of manner - think the more electro-pop Field Mice or They Go Boom!! hits, but offset by Austin's deflated lovelorn croons; "I don't wear a watch / cos I know that it's too late...". It's the best type of twee/pop you can get really, never too cloying and cupcakey but perfectly bittersweet. Be sure to also check out his excellent covers EP featuring yr favourite hits from Paramore, Ace of Base, Paul Simon and Tricky over at his bandcamp, say whaaaaattt!
