Consisting of three members who don’t live in the same city—or even in close proximity to each other—with their own distinctive musical sensibilities, Secret Cities definitely make the most of their differences. Veering from spot-on girl-group nostalgia to warm, homespun experimentation, those diverse points of view come together on the indie-pop group’s latest album, Walk Me Home. And it’s particularly apparent on the track “Paradise”, which combines contemplative mid-tempo tones with enough lilting melody to lift the bittersweet moods.

“Paradise” premieres here on PopMatters; Walk Me Home releases on 24 June via Western Vinyl.
