Montreal duo Secret Sun is very excited to share their new music video for Passing Cars. Directed by Hervé Baillargeon, the black and white video was shot in a wave pool in Saint-Sauveur (QC) and also features a miniature fire tornado. Baillargeon was inspired by the beat of the song, which reminded him of the mechanism behind the waves of a wave pool. The result is both epic and sensitive, which accurately reflects the band's music.
Passing Cars opens Secret Sun's debut album, Cold Coast, due September 30th via Bonsound. The song captures the disorientation and nostalgia that can creep into a long-time couple's standstill life. Produced by Sébastien Blais-Montpetit (Radio Radio's Belmundo Regal) and François Lafontaine (Karkwa), the album creates a universe of its own in which melancholy meets sensuality. It is the perfect life soundtrack as we bid adieu to hot summer days.
Cold Coast is available for pre-order on bandcamp and iTunes. Secret Sun will be launching the album in Montreal at Le Belmont on September 30th, and will be opening for Groenland in Toronto at Rivoli on October 2nd. Until then, you can catch their show at POP Montreal this Friday, September 19th at Divan Orange.

La pop atmosphérique de Secret Sun accrochera à la première écoute.
Julie Ledoux, Voir
C’est atmosphérique, planant et envoûtant. Ceux qui ont aimé le film Drive et sa bande-son ou qui aiment Beach house vont être conquis par sa délicatesse et son extravagance.

Secret Sun, the duo of Anne-Marie Campbell and Simon Landry, crafted lush and languid alternative pop songs that were simply spellbinding. Campbell has one of those beguiling, siren-like voices that effortlessly moves from high to low and back again.

Cold Coast has created the comforting chill of its title: inviting, simplistically powerful and filled with longing as we retreat into winter.
Une voix céleste. Des arrangements eighties nocturnes envoutants.
