Tune: Partner – “Gross Secret”

August 25, 2017

Partner make honesty addictive. Every single thus far released from their upcoming album In Search Of Lost Time has been a bonafide earworm wth nothing to hide. The Canadian duo’s overall aesthetic strongly reflects the warmth of indie rock in the 90’s and the grit of classic rock. But it’s the playful way Lucy Niles and Josée Caron (Partner) approach their subject matter and song form that brings their particular brand of rock crashing into the quirks and studio refinement of 2017. “Gross Secret” packs a bunch but tells nothing. A rush of guitars in broad, overdriven strokes convey the tense, uneasy feeling of withholding or desiring the details of particularly embarrassing, confidential matters. Gently surfacing from the anticipatory strums of the pre-chorus to the ending blast of the refrain is more satisfying with every iteration. Dipping and soaring dynamically with ease, “Gross Secret” is a 3-minute ride of indie rock that is as relatable as it is rollicking. In Search Of Lost Time will be out September 8th on You’ve Changed Records and you can pre-order it here.
