PUSHY PARENTS - Secret Secret (Limited edition 7" vinyl + free MP3 download)
01. Secret Secret
02. Hold Me Tight Or Let Me Go
03. He's My Saturday
04. Dear John
Even if they wanted to, they couldn't have made a better landing to Elefant Records with their debut single - PUSHY PARENTS is still a secret which almost nobody knows about and with just one song, 'Secret Secret', Elefant Records fell head over heels in love.
PUSHY PARENTS was created exclusively for the studio - a super band with 4 musicians: Amanda Aldervall always proclaimed herself as a big fan of Amelia Fletcher, demonstrated in FREE LOAN INVESTMENTS and THE ANDERSEN TAPES. Roger Gunnarsson is another key figure and was an important member behind the FREE LOAN INVESTMENTS, THE HAPPY BIRTHDAYS and THE GARLANDS. His solitary project NIXON released various records and increased their fanbase in the indiepop world and with compositions/productions for CLOETTA PARIS and SALLY SHAPIRO.
Daniel Jansson is a former member of THE CONSEQUENCES, and Le Prix has written for artists such as KYLIE MINOGUE and SALLY SHAPIRO.
'He's My Saturday' is a precious song which starts off like NANCY SINATRA a converts into Northern Soul. 'Secret Secret' is filled with robust bass sounds and is tremendously addictive - as if VELOCETTE covered SKEETER DAVIS under the supervision of SLOWDIVE.
'Hold Me Tight or Let Me Go' is the perfect song halfway between THE SMITHS, SAMBASSADEUR and EVEN AS WE SPEAK. They say goodbye with 'Dear John' - a mix between synth pop and dream pop, such as LUSH and PACIFIC, sounding like they could be sampled by THE GO! TEAM - fans of BROADCAST would be proud.
