Secret Colours "Oblivion"

Psych Rock group Secret Colours has returned with their first new music since 2017 in the form of a single called "Oblivion". The b-side to the single is a fantastically hazy instrumental cover of Donna Summer's classic "I Feel Love", and the two songs together provide a great little escape into a colorful psychedelic world beyond our own.
