BACK TO BASICS: Shaded Eyes EP: 7”

Secret Mission continues to bring incredible Japanese bands to turntables worldwide, with Back To Basics delivering two marvelous new tracks on this perfect single that self-describes as an EP. Hailing from Kyoto and featuring members of Louder and First Alert, this is definitive Japanese powerpop that’s irresistible from the first listen. Only two hundred of these are available stateside, so make sure to swoop it up while you can. Secret Mission’s momentum is on fire right now, with them churning out hit after hit. No one’s throwing shade at Shaded Eyes! –Art Ettinger (Secret Mission, secretmissionrecords.com)
