Here come The Wet Secrets, a furry-hatted frantic pop six-piece from Edmonton, known for their bass and horn heavy dance rock and their unmistakable, impeccable tailoring. The Wet Secrets turn dysfunction into inspiration with swampy basslines, primal drumming, towering, dancing horn section, keys, saxophone and congas. It looks like Pop Art, it sounds like party rock.
“I Can Swing A Hammer” is a brand new song, released today on Six Shooter Records through all digital and streaming platforms. The song is a taste of things to come from the band’s next album, The Tyranny of Objects, expected in Spring 2016. In less than four minutes you too will feel that you can swing a hammer with the best of them.
Listen to “I Can Swing A Hammer” Below.
This Sunday, November 22, The Wet Secrets will perform “I Can Swing A Hammer,” complete with the Edmonton Eskimo Cheer Team’s choreographed dance moves, at the CFL’s West Final.
