The Soviet Influence – “Secret Space”

“Secret Space” is a moody rocker from The Soviet Influence, a trio from Ontario, Canada. Guitars expand from bare rhythm accompaniments to twangy, melodic leads, as the emotive vocal presence revs up. The vocal presence throughout reminds fondly of Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield. A slick guitar solo approaching the two-minute mark also adds effectively to the song’s tone and allure. The track is a nice showcase of the band’s sound, as is the opener “This Is The News.”

The track comes from the band’s recently released album The Price of Vigilence, which can be streamed in full below:
