"The Asbury Park-based indie-rock band Secret Mountain are a delightful mix of whimsical fun and meaningful passion that brings to the DIY scene a sense of inclusiveness and originality that is as refreshing as it is contagious." (Bob Makin, Makin Waves/ New Jersey Stage )
"I cannot tell you how unprepared, and then blown away, I was by this band, beginning with their first song, "Shift Happens." The one thing I kept thinking the whole time I watched them was that they were like a punk-lo-fi-indie jam band. The entire room, if not bouncing along, either knew the words or knew the right moments to dance to songs. Lots of freaking out and laughing and in-jokes between the band and audience. There was a lot of love in the room for this band, and it was hard not to feel that." (Allyson Dwyer, Cool Dad Music)
"Secret Mountain sing about the slightly absurd or even the mundane and get at some universal feelings – loneliness, insecurity, being done with a relationship. There are elements of punk and lo-fi along with jangles and twangs that recall some of my favorite indie guitar pop. Together, it all adds up to something endearing for its fun and its honesty." (Jim Appio, Cool Dad Music)
