Secret Sign is a Canadian electronic band self-producing heartfelt, ‘80s-influenced pop. The members of the Toronto-based trio hold a deep admiration for the New Wave, New Romantic, and disco styles, indulging their synth-pop desires in a modern setting.
Today The Record Stache premieres the first taste of new music since Secret Sign’s summer 2016 track, Chase. Priestess is the lead single off the band’s upcoming EP, Fever Dance. The groove-laden, high-energy cut showcases singer Kaila Moon’s soaring vocals over keyboardist Phil Baljeu’s infectious synth lines and guitarist Danny Alexander’s rhythmic backing.
“The story comes when I hear the music,” says singer Kaila Moon about channeling her mysterious lyrics over the upbeat dance track’s seductive pulse. “Priestess is about a powerful feminine entity.”
Recorded over the course of 2016, the band’s debut EP Fever Dance is a 6-track release of pastel-hued synth-pop. Conjuring Italo-disco, Depeche Mode, and early Madonna, Fever Dance represents Secret Sign’s brighter, pop-oriented side. If Priestess is any indication, the EP, set for release on January 26th, is well worth checking out in the New Year.
