It can be understandable if you’ve never heard the music of Nashville’s Secondhand Sound. The band has only been around about three years and they’re all in their early twenties. However, for their new single “Dominoes” there’s a chance you’re familiar with their sound. Full on nineties alternative rock guitars at full volume alongside catchy hooks make up what they do and they actually do so well.
The band has no issue with bringing their big guitars to light pretty much from the jump. The hooks roll in at the same time, steering your attention more towards the catchy melody. Where the lyrics have a bit of a distanced sound, the riffs are big and quenching for with a big thirst. The nineties tone falls between Pixies and Smashing Pumpkins though with more pop sensibility added. There is however a run that’s closer to the music of Rush, but it’s still big and bombastic. The squeals from the feedback flow and the guitars carry plenty of weight in guiding the song along with ease.
“Dominoes” can be heard above or wherever you stream music. The song is also available in all digital music retailers for download.
