Sounds Of Secret Stages 2018: Opin

While I may not be there in body, my mind and heart will be away down south in Dixie this weekend. Why, you may ask? Well, it's Secret Stages, y'all! August 3-4 sees this boutique festival take over Birmingham once again, bringing together sounds from all ends of the spectrum. If you're in the vicinity, you should absolutely stop what you're doing and go see some folks do their thing. I've put together a shortlist of some artists I'd make time for if I was at the festival, and I hope you'll check them out regardless of whether you're in Alabama this weekend or not.

Hailing from just down I-95 a piece in the musical hotbed that is Richmond, band-to-watch Opin is taking their heady noise on the road. The Egghunt signees skillfully bring together 80s-infused electro elements with heavier, unpredictable sonic hijinks, creating multi-faceted songs that carry with them a sense of tension and unrest while also managing to be inviting enough to be instantly appealing.
