not at all. Saosin has these faint psychodelic guitar riffs, while Secret & Whisper's are a bit simpler. And while Furney and Reber both have strong, overpowering vocals, Reber's is more shrill. The drummers are definately not to be compared. Both bands have similar basses, but instrumentally, they are NOT Saosin. Just similar. Although, S&Ws "Lovers" reminds me of Saosin's "Voices," but that's just the intro.
