The Secret Love Parade
Janna Coomans and Aino Vehmasto
Indie-pop from Amsterdam.Signed to Snowstar Records. Discography to date includes Secret Love Parade (2009) and Mary Looking Ready (2011) and The Victorians Are Coming (2012).
Janna (25, Amsterdam) and Aino (23, Utrecht) got to know each other at the age of 15 and immediately started making music. After they had traveled around the world, they formed The Secret Love Parade and their self-composed songs soon managed to charm the audience with their melodic electropop.
Over the past three years the band has grown considerably. The release of their debut album The Secret Love Parade in 2009 was soon followed by gigs in Paradiso Amsterdam Theatre. The band also played the 2011 Noorderslag festival, and received airplay and exposure inBerlin, South Korea and Japan.
With second album Mary Looking Ready, the tone became deeper and darker than the debut. There is still the sixties sound, but now accompanied by seamlessly blended electronics and experimental influences (think Ladytron, The Knife, I Break Horses and Beach House).
