Memory Music’s newest release brings together Secret Space and The Flats for a split EP. Secret Space is the songwriting outfit of Dean Tartaglia (vocalist/multi-instrumentalist) featur- ing Zach Ruetz and Steve Warstler (drummer). Where their EP established their roots in heavy, atmospheric rock, Secret Space pushes their sound foward on their debut LP, with a collection of crossover caliber pop rock anthems. Produced, and in part written by Will Yip, their debut bridg- es the gap between alternative and pop music in ways that no band has done quite so effectively yet.
The Flats are a six piece indie/ alternative rock band from northwest Ohio/ southeast Michigan. The Flats formed in the months following a DIY L.P. release titled “Liberation & The House In Blue” (Nov. 2014). The LP was home recorded and The Flats initially functioned as a writing tool of Chris Kerekes, teamed with his brother and some of his close friends. Since then, the band has grown exponentially with the addition of talented full time members.The Flats set forth to bring honest music to the table, with a focus on catchy melodies and emotion filled lyricism.
