Bio: Beginning in Nashville in 2013, Safe Secrets creates songs based on anonymously submitted stories by fans. With a deep love for all genre’s, and an affinity towards rock n roll, this alternative outfit has toured all over the Eastern US hoping to connect fans to their music and message.
“We just want to break people out of their mentality of apathy. Don’t pay attention to the people that tell you things about yourself, because in the end, you are the only one who decides who you are. We all go through life differently, but that doesn’t mean anyone should ever feel alone. We’re all in it together, and music is meant to remind us of that. It feels good helping someone that’s going through a tough time, especially when you connect over art and personal experiences”

Opening with Intro – an eighty-five second track that sets up the confabulation of distorted ideas which sit inside Snakes And Spiders and by the very presence of this number the listener is immediately aware Safe Secrets is a band of far greater confidence than that introduced in February of last year, as with no hesitancy they throw in a curve-ball for the ears.
On hitting Toe Tagged, time to turn up the volume and scatter the furniture in a track which features dropping scales with a hefty bass note to conclude the progressions of bars giving the piece a sense of the downtrodden, which is suddenly torn asunder by screaming guitar.
Not Alone Part II is next on Snakes And Spiders and sadly already marks the half-way point. Finding some connection with Not Alone Part I which was the opening track on the LP Let Em’ Hear It, in that it too is a blousy guitar number, here Safe Secrets have tightened the sails with double time drums thwacks in a number that featured in the 2016 New Year Ninety.
The penultimate track – Sugar is marked by a scorched earth flame-thrower that blisters the speakers and is my pick of the release as the trio let their hair down in an all guns firing piece that demands immediate replay.
Concluding Snakes And Spiders (available on bandcamp) is Liars And Lions which discovers Safe Secrets in introspective acoustic opening moment. Their most self challenging piece with sharp clefts demanding of clean edged syncopation and they are able to deliver the precipices of tempo change and unexpected full-stops with alacrity. Perhaps the track that defines their coming of age and sets the bar for future releases. – Emerging Indie Bands
