Secret Shine at SXSW

U.K. dreampoppers Secret Shine -- who have returned after nine years for a tour and new music, the April 8-released All of the Stars -- made a ton of shoegaze dorks very happy at Habana Calle on Thursday night. Playing a mix of new songs and old, the quintet used co-ed vocal harmonies, bristling guitars and swirling storms of sound to create beautiful chaos. Think Slowdive, Lush and the House of Love. For St. Louis folk, good news: The band plays at aPop Records on Tuesday, March 18, with Tears Run Rings.

(band asked the video to be removed, sorry!)
