Talk In Code have a “Secret”
Swindon, UK based group Talk In Code have just released their stonking new single, “Secret”, which brings back so many memories of those feel good 80’s retro anthems with euphoric lyrics and an uplifting soundtrack, this is power pop at its very best! The song is the follow up to their earlier release, “Taste The Sun”, from the west country four piece, who have been recording since 2014.
“Secret” is the fourth single to be released by the band this year, and was recorded and mixed in more normal times, just two weeks before lockdown, at Studio 91 in Newbury. “Secret” has a familiar story of meeting that someone special and falling in love and all the emotions it brings with it. And with a late 80’s backdrop – which the band say is inspired from songs like Go West’s “The King Of Wishful Thinking” and Whitney’s “How Will I Know” – this is no 80’s cheese!
Talk In Code are Chris Stevens (vocals, guitars), Alastair “Snedds” Sneddon (guitars, programming), Mark “Titch” Turner (bass, programming) and Jamie O’Sullivan (drums) and they released their self-titled debut album in 2014. After a break, they returned in 2018 with a follow up, “Resolve”, which featured the singles, “Keep Safe” and “Oxygen”. The band’s output this year has been nothing short of retro-rocking with the shimmering “Talk Like That”, the sombre “Taste The Sun” and now the retro-pop “Secret”. Let’s hope there is an album on the way soon…(!)
