Telling Secrets keeps their side of the crypt clean. The music Vik Kovacs makes isn’t for everybody, for it challenges the norms. This is a musician who has understood the fabric of a certain genre and tried to bend it to his will, almost without touching it. His style is so unique and carries grace, you’ll wonder why all his music hasn’t exploded yet. This is his latest, Tired of Waiting.
A smashing, aggressive and powerful track if I know one. Take it as a movie, something like American Satan. If Chekhov’s Gun wasn’t used for the beginning of the sequence, you’d know what the energy is going to be like. Telling Secrets has the fuel and fire to make this a propulsion system unlike any other. As you can hear the riff creeping up in the intro, you know that your neck needs a mini warm-up. You can hear the Bring Me The Horizon influences in the song. The percussion is a bullet strafe, and when it meets the riff, they ballet into some dynamite sequences. Lyrics especially inspire, for they ask you to claim what is yours instead of waiting on it. Another fire wielding smoke pit with some serious damage.
Telling Secrets has singles like Lullaby and Bad Dreams in the roster. This is a project that is beyond the genre, it is an indie musician’s delight. As long as Kovacs is dictating it by his own rules. I would love this in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003). The action packed movie could use some action oriented songs as well. Listen to the single above and follow for more killer music!
