Black Light Secret are one of the coolest psychedelic rock bands to come out of the Midlands in recent years. It’s difficult to put them in a category, but their music ranges from psychedelic space rock, to Dub infusions. Step in to another dimension with these masked marauders of the void. Let their musical fronds of form and harmony, take you on a pleasant journey. No middle 8’s – No choruses – just natural & organic at its finest.
