Secret Shame return with the rollicking new single ‘Gift’. Channelling the best bits of post-punk, the Asheville band create arresting indie rock that packs a punch.

Echoing contemporaries such as Savages and classic 80s bands such as Siouxsie and the Banshees, the new single is propelled forth by urgent basslines and rollicking drumbeats with raw guitar work and the abrupt and emotive delivery of vocalist Lena.

Taken from their forthcoming album Dark Synthetics, the track is the perfect introduction to their new work.“There’s not a single word I didn’t write from the pit of my stomach,” Lena says. “The entire record- even though the song dynamics change- has one solid emotion, which is the struggle of inner turmoil and being trapped inside yourself. It’s the feeling of holding a scream in the back of your throat.”

‘Gift’ is available now via Portrayal of Guilt Records.
