My Secret Island I Miss The Day Brings Out The 80s Punk Rock With A Strong Release

My Secret Island pushes out a very cool release, and I’m hooked. It has a certain 1970s and 1980s punk and pop sensibility that you’re going to want to put on repeat. The four songs found on “My Secret Island” really come together in a string of songs that all flow together. It feels like a full record, and it feels longer than it really is. From the first track of “I Miss The Day” through the subsequent tracks, you’re going to be hit with a wall of noise that is cohesive, and very much in the vein of the 1980s punk movement without pretense. The rough guitars, great vocals, and the cover of “Sheila” definitely make for a great record to pick up today.

Even though the record came out in September 2012, it still holds up quite well. It starts with a rock sound that you’re familiar with, and then drives the point home with eclectic moments and strong rock, and alternative moments. From the opening track of “I Miss The Day”, to the cover of “Sheila”, the album flows in unison almost, and you could definitely see this record getting a lot of plays for just about any alternative and rock fan.

The 2 other version of “I Miss The Day” are also solid, and definitely make this single a good mix to pick up and play. I love the guitar work on it, and love the vocals, as they are prominent, and powerful. There’s such a good mix here, and it’s definitely well worth exploring deeper. My Secret Island’s single mix here is profound and well worth exploring. Make sure to keep an eye out for their full length release, it should be grand. The Tommy Roe cover of “Sheila” should definitely get you moving.

You can check out this single and more via here, itunes here, and musicload here. You can also view the video below, and if you check out the comments over on youtube you can see that Tommy Roe himself dropped off a comment, so you know it’s good.
