About We Need Secrets

The solo project of Kestrels' Chad Peck, Halifax, Nova Scotia's We Need Secrets continues the tradition of shoegaze luminaries such as My Bloody Valentine, the Swirlies, and fellow Canadians Eric's Trip. The project -- whose name comes from a Pavement single -- began when Peck recorded a set of songs entirely on his own in his efforts to learn how to play drums. However, when Asymmetrie Records issued the demo as the 2011 limited-edition cassette release Flutter + Hiss, it soon sold out. Later that year, the single Purple/Slow Summer arrived as part of the 7" series on Peck's label, Noyes Records. In 2012, We Need Secrets returned with a split single with Sea Glasses that featured songs that would later appear on the project's debut album. Saint Marie Records included a song from the band on their 2013 compilation Static Waves 2 and released 2014's more polished full-length Melancholy and the Archive, which was mixed by Ringo Deathstarr's Elliott Frazier and mastered by Shellac's Bob Weston. ~ Heather Phares
