about

J. Forté (Ape House, Secret Pop Band, Lejeune, The Buzz, Sun Machines) goes lo-fi for his solo debut Secret Pop. Written, performed and recorded at home by Forté with the skillful drumming assistance of GP Shook, Secret Pop presents a slightly darker, though no less melodic flavor of the indie power-pop fans have come to love from Forté's projects. Forté wastes no time, delivering twelve cuts in just over thirty minutes, making Secret Pop the ideal record for the pop enthusiast with a short attention span.

Alternatively optimistic and pessimistic, Forté’s tunes about the drudgery of working life, romantic strife, and rock and roll make an equally appropriate soundtrack to a quiet evening at home or a hazy nite on the town. From the Byrdsian pop-rush of “Purple Clouds, Dark Skies” to the dynamic rock stylings of “Lines to Follow,” Secret Pop delivers the pop goods.

Fans of double-tracked vocals, fuzzy pop guitars, cool keyboards, and infectious drumming look no further, Secret Pop is here.
