Brusque and Gentle
Pedro Teixeira Silva’s project Secret Lie veers between these two extremes. “Blackout” is an appropriate illustration where he weaves his emotional rollercoaster into a wonderful nightmare of life from their debut album “Behind the Truth.
“So wake up, open up your eyes.”
Quiet storytelling accompanied by piano peacefully starts our journey which is then crushed with Secret Lie’s full vocal and band slaughter.
Sara Madeira’s serene vocal textures sooth away the after-images as she soars above the madness.
“…we are wasting our lives…so open our eyes.”
We found it essential to listen to “Beautiful Wild Rose” many times during our recovery from “Blackout.” It’s hard to imagine that brusque and gentle can live in one concept or even one song but Secret Lie pulls it all together in song after wonderful song.
