“Secret School is the alias of Seattle-based electronic musician Andrew Sutherland. His third release under the Secret School moniker marks his most confident and cohesive statement yet, putting his exceptional production skills and knack for immersive beats, lush textures, and wide-ranging styles on full display.
Written and recorded quickly in Seattle following a cross-country move from Boston, this self-titled affair finds inspiration in the natural, scenic backdrops of the Pacific Northwest as well as a radically simplified process. While previous releases found Sutherland singing lyrics and leaning towards a synth-pop style, here his voice is used strictly as an additional instrument within his intricately arranged productions, placing the focus on absorbing, driving rhythms and enveloping, gauzy atmospherics to tell its beautiful sonic story.”
