Melancholy And The Archive is the first full-length release from Nova Scotia, Canada’s We Need Secrets, the pet project of Chad Peck (Kestrels, Noyes Records). All songs were written, recorded, and performed by Chad, with guest appearances by ANGO, Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr), Paul Brown (Kestrels), and Omar Husain (Aim Low). Frazier also mixed the LP, which was mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac.

“Melancholy and the Archive” was brought to fruition over a four year period. With this record, we see the full actualization of Chad’s artistic vision. This collection of shoegazey but catchy pop jams fit together perfectly to form a perfect document of the genius of Chad Peck.
