Secret Rendezvous Will Love You 'Better Than She Can'
Having first caught our attention courtesy of a creative YouTube cover, Dutch duo Secret Rendezvous - singer/songwriter Sietske “Sisi” Morsch and producer/guitarist Remi “Sausbei” Lauw - went on to prove the shimmery appeal of their eclectically sourced electro-soul with the swirling synths and giddy emotion of 'Homie. Lover. Friend'. A perfect example of their knack for seamlessly integrating the cooing emotion and jazzy hues of Morsch's smooth vocal delivery with the intricacy and sophistication of Lauw's intriguingly lush layers and waves of electro-accents and cascading synths, 'Homie. Lover. Friend' rightly saw them gain recognition on the Dutch music scene from the likes of MTV and 3FM. Back with new music after a busy tour schedule, Secret Rendezvous return with the synth-pop vibe of 'Love You Better'. Drawing self-proclaimed inspiration from '80s pop hits from Miami Sound Machine, Whitney Houston and Madonna, but also 90s vocalists like Robin S. with a pinch of tropical and a whole lotta Secret Rendezvous', the track swirls with synths that chime, fuzz and morph as they emerge over a muted electro-pulse and crisply clapping snare, all the while Morsch's subtle phrasing staking a wary claim for the contested object of her affection.
