Brooklyn’s Makes My Blood Dance first came to our attention back in June, with their single, ‘Beaming Right Up’, which was a blend of disco, glam, electropop and metal. Now they return with their latest track, ‘Sick As Our Secrets’, and their sound is an homage to a punk rock camaraderie that anyone would be glad to have.
With the swagger of the Sunset Strip while mixed with tight New York City grooves, ‘Sick As Our Secrets’ shines a little hope into a world of chaos. the radio ready track is courtesy not just to the band and their slick talents and production values, but also to mixer David Ogilvie, whose many credits include Skinny Puppy, Rob Zombie, and Marilyn Manson.
‘Sick As Our Secrets’ is the title track to the band’s new album, and it’s true that it’s a hard one to beat. The accompanying music video sees Makes My Blood Dance in an dingy rock club, while a girl writhes seductively as a crew of misfits hangs out in the mens’ room. It’s a taste of what Makes My Blood Dance’s live show is like, each member as if it was the most important thing in his life. There’s a second narrative, to the clip. An alienated, misunderstood man walks away from a prison-like home and looks set to return to his old ways. The band’s message however is one of unity and acceptance, as he finds his people.
