Taken from their just-released debut EP ‘Secret’, Siboney + Andy have released their first visual to date for the title track. The pair forge a unique and polished musical juxtaposition between their pop, electronic and folk influences to create something brazenly unique. Listen here
Self-produced by Andy, the track finds a huge sonic landscape, with Siboney’s vocal forming a glossy, warm, and remarkably timeless melody, evoking the anguished lyrics. The video itself sees an exchange of a locked suitcase – a feeling of angst and desperation permeates. As the pair finally meet at the climax there is an unspoken agreement in a moment of calmness to leave it locked, reflecting on the chorus lyrics of “I will keep this secret ‘til I die”.
The ‘Secret’ EP contains similarly explicit hooks with a distinctively inventive indie edge. Siboney’s pop sensibility melding with Andy’s varied influences, crossing live instrumentation and strong vocal performances with Andy’s assured production flair. This is a strong debut from a duo seeking to make their mark in an inventive, brave way.
The pair met in Australia before moving to London in 2011, earning their stripes playing the city’s live circuit together throughout various musical endeavours. It wasn’t until 2014 that they decided to solidify their musical relationship – forming Siboney + Andy and making music together following the career-defining recommendation of an L.A.-based friend.
