Epic Record’s newly signed duo, Secret Weapons, have been a force to be reckoned with! Their single, “Something New,” blasted its way to the Top 5 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart and boasts 1 million streams. Secret Weapons will continue their journey to the top, making their television debut this Tuesday on NBC’s the Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda, as Elvis Duran’s “Artist of the Month!”
Gerry Lange and Dan Rocco, who make up the group, signed with Epic in a unique turn of events. Rocco was a lawyer for the label by day and performer by night. Secret Weapons was creating a buzz in New York with sold-out shows and infectious music, but “Something New”‘s rise on Spotify is what really got LA Reid’s attention. Now, Dan signed a contract with Epic instead of writing one!
Mr.Reid isn’t the only one noticing the new talent. Nate Ruess of the band Fun. liked Secret Weapons so much so that he invited them to open a few shows of his solo tour. SW also opened for A Great Big World for their sold-out New York City gig. Even Billboard pegged them among “Tomorrow’s Hits” in a piece aptly titled “Weapons Aim and Score.” The secret’s out and Secret Weapons are headed for the spotlight!
In “Something New,” the duo sings “We’re all running with the wolves now/ I’ll take my chance because there’s nothing left to lose/ I want something new,” over pop rock synths that can be compared to Walk The Moon’s recent hit, “Shut Up And Dance.” The track will be making radio impact in early 2016 and the band is currently working on a full-length album! Needless to say, you’ll be hearing a lot more from Secret Weapons sooner rather than later.
