about

"I knew these two would make an awesome record together, but "Second Time"/"Over My Head" is even beyond what I was expecting. These are two of the best pop songs of this year or any other. Sweet and Marino make a formidable duo, and it will be a major disappoint if they don't record together again." - Lord Rutledge

""Second Time"/"Over My Head" features brand-new smash hits from both of these amazing artists. But this is no ordinary split single -- it's a true collaboration! Sweet and Marino each came to this project with a new song idea and then benefited from having the other add parts to it. Each track is in the signature style of its lead artist, but the input of both songwriters is easy to hear. That says a lot about the talent of these two individuals, but it also says a lot about how well their musical styles complement each other." - Faster And Louder

"Second Time is a pure bright fizzbomb of a song which recalls prime time Voice of the Beehive sharing a couple of mojitos with the Go-Go's while Over My Head is another bright sunny duet sounding like what would happen if the Ramones teamed up with Faye Fife and Eugene Reynolds from the Rezillos. Think this might just be our Single of the Month right 'ere." - Nite Songs


“What’s not to love about this perfect pairing! Having always loved the ‘team’ of Holly Beth Vincent and Joey Ramone, this is indeed taken to the next level. Turn this one up and keep it on repeat.” - “Boris” Boden, The Secret Weapon on Woody Radio

"For a power pop garage nugget, it doesn’t get better than this." - Boston Groupie News

"Second Time is powerpop in optima forma." - WoNo Blog

"Two great talents in their own right, Natalie Sweet and Brad Marino, have collaborated on this gem "Second Time"!!" - Skybar Rising, WMFO

I discovered Natalie Sweet from Lord Rutledge at Faster & Louder. He had my 1st LP “Extra Credit” #3 on his 2019 Best of. Right behind…Natalie Sweet and Pale Lips. I loved Natalie’s 1st LP and when she posted online about wanting to collaborate with different people I jumped at the chance. I’ve always wanted to collaborate with someone outside the usual crew and it was a great chance to do so. Natalie sent me her idea for “Second Time” just her singing the song on her phone and I thought even in it’s primitive state that it had a great hook and she had something there. We collaborated on that one with me adding some lyrics and a bridge. At this time I had recently started writing “Over My Head” and presented it to Natalie who did a great job coming up with a female point of view in the song and adding lyrics that really helped the song tell a story and pushed it forward. I’m very excited about this release- it was a blast creating these songs with Natalie and bringing them to life with two old buddy’s Craig Sala on drums and Kris Rodgers on key’s! The two tracks were expertley mixed by Mike Kennerty ( All American Rejects, Screeching Weasel) and mastered by Justin Perkins. Big thanks to Jamie at Reta Records for putting this release together and to my longtime friend and label boss Malibu Lou for bringing Rum Bar Records on board for this great release! -- Brad Marino, Rochester NH June 2022
