6/10 Mike Staff review, 09 May 2014

After nine long years of making music together, Secret Cities have finally made an album with all three of them in the same room. 'Walk Me Home' is a gentle bit of indie rock with boy/girl vocals and a chameleon-esque changeability, although the songs are without exception smooth and pleasant.

Sometimes they're opting for windswept Wild Beasts falsetto, but they're as likely to be found playing around with cute little mini Beach Boys harmonies, Randy Newman-esque piano-led whimsy, sunbleached Best Coast reverb pop and the odd bit of uplifting indie rock thrum. The way it jumps around can be a bit confusing...the press release discusses the band members' disparate influences so maybe that explains the identity crisis the album seems to be going through.

It's strange, I don't actually find any of the individual tracks at all offensive but to me the best indie rock bands have a unified aesthetic. This album is coming at me from all angles and never really settling on anything long or decisively enough to make an impact. It seems confused and sometimes hurried and strangely unsatisfying, although it's hard to tell on initial listens if it's half-baked or the problem is simply that it's musically dense and repeated listens will help untangle it.
