Longwave: Secrets Are Sinister

Secrets Are Sinister
Original Signal Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Many alternative rock fans may have completely forgotten about New York's Longwave but the group makes a stellar re-entry into the scene this month with the release of their fourth record Secrets Are Sinister. It is a complete return to why they were a buzz band back in the day with pulsating bass riffs, loud washed out guitars and a big UK rock sound that grabs the listener. Secrets Are Sinister plays great as a full record with seamless transitions, a good mix of upbeat tracks and ballads plus plenty of soaring melodies that makes repeat listens a treat!

Key Track: "Satellites"

Band With Similar Fire: The Stills
