Review:: Secret Someones | Secret Someones


Women in the
music industry are constantly in competition with males; they are either
overlooked entirely or not credited enough. In contrast to the usual
same-gender lineups, or the occasional female-fronted group, Secret Someones is
a talented group of alternative rockers of females and one male. (Girl power!)

singer-songwriters, Bess Rogers, Lelia Broussard, and Hannah Winkler, play bass
and guitar while Zach Jones plays the drums. Their ten-track self-titled album
is filled with talent and passion and inspired by Weezer, Talking Heads, and
Tom Petty.

Opening track “I
Won’t Follow,” is a super catchy, fun tune and the harmonies are strong and passionate.  

“Quit Pulling Me
Down” and “Let You Go” are two of the stronger, most empowering songs –  two girl-power ballads about deserving respect
and standing up to someone each deserve a listen.

Listening to
“Hey Hey Honey,” I noticed how powerful the guitar was, especially in the
second verse with the guitars getting stronger during the transition into the
chorus and once again with the guitar solo during the bridge.

The first two
seconds of “Headfirst” made me dance. Towards the end of the song, there were a
few seconds of instrumentals that beautifully transitioned into harmonic
voices. The beginning of this song, as well as “Only One I Want,” convinced me
I was at a rock concert in outer space, as weird as it sounds. It was cool.
They are two songs I would never get tired of listening to.

starts off with a slower, romantic vibe, then transitions into the upbeat
chorus and back into the slower verses. The voice was strong and the guitar was
played with such force, such passion influenced me in feeling like I had
complete control over my life and how I dealt with love.

The beginning of
“Dead Weight” sounds like the opening drums in “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne. Noticing
other bands in music proves how connected and talented musicians really are.

My favorite part
of “Surrender,” hands down, was the drumming. Jones did a fantastic job of
making me wish I knew how to play the drums. Instead, I played the air drums
with my fingers and pretended I was as talented as him.

The last track
on the album, “Chase Your Shadow,” started off slow and almost with a techno
kind of vibe. The singers’ voices were smooth and powerful, and
one heck of a talent to end the album. The harmonies were fantastic and I could
listen to it for hours.

Secret Someones
identify as an empowering, strong-voiced, instrumentally talented group of
Do not let them
be a secret anymore.
These someones
are worth a listen.
