The perfect summer jam is an elusive and temperamental beast, impossible to track down one minute and blaring from your car stereo the next. Our Memorial Day playlist took a stab at collecting some of the best Milwaukee summer jams of 2017, though that playlist is now sorely incomplete. Enter “Secrets,” the latest single from electro-pop favorites GGOOLLDD. Similar to the group’s past work, the song is sleek, sexy, shimmering, and as catchy as sunburn on a cloudless day. Is sunburn actually “catchy”? Whatever. You know what we mean.
“Secrets” was recorded in May at Maze Studios in Atlanta, and will be part of an EP due later this year. Like GGOOLLDD’s last single, “Undercovers,” the track was produced by Ben H. Allen. Also, it’s pretty great. Take a listen:
“Secrets” has been in regular rotation on 88Nine’s new all-Milwaukee station, though it can be streamed here for the first time. (The band will formally release the track on Friday.) Oh, and here’s GGOOLLDD’s announced tour schedule for the rest of the year. Three words: State Fair gig!
