Nobody can accuse Chicago's Secret Colours of slacking off. Between summer 2010 and the end of the year the band released not only their debut full-length LP, but also two standalone singles - the two-track  In the Absence and a trippy cover of The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows." They have also played frequent gigs and have drummed up quite a bit of attention in the Windy City and beyond. Now they're back with another single, Follow the Drone. It includes two brand new songs and is available for free download on their Bandcamp site.

"Follow the Drone" is more of what the band does best: hazy, rockin' psychedelia with some pop elements thrown into the mix. The B side, "Lust (Slow)," takes a slower, dreamier route. Both tracks are excellent additions to the ever-growing Secret Colours canon.

For the live experience, keep the following dates in mind: Saturday, January 8th at Subterranean (with We Are Hex and Apteka) and Thursday, February 17 at the Empty Bottle (with Young Circles, Panda Riot and Calm Palm Vapor. Free with RSVP).

To sample some more Secret Colours goodness, here's "Popstar" off their debut, self-titled LP:
