You can’t be a good old rock ‘n’ roll groove. It’s been driving all the best forms of music since about 1956, and as they say, if it ain’t broke… Park Secret has taken the essence of that groove and built a poised yet infectious track by the name of Happy To Be Here on top of it.

And it works. Boy, does it work. A bundle of soulful licks on top of that solid beat, timeless vocal style and some classic indie rock vibes. And whilst it might be built on some very traditional sonic fundamentals, Happy To Be Here is about as representative of where indie pop is today as you can get.
