Brooklyn’s Nude Beach is returning with 77, their third album and follow-up to 2012’s II, on October 21st via Don Giovanni Records. The effort’s first single “I Can’t Keep The Tears From Falling” finds the band in their sweet spot, doling out Tom Petty and The Replacements-inspired power-pop and rock.
An energetic and lively number, “I Can’t Keep The Tears From Falling” features walloping distorted chords, an enormous earworm of a chorus, and a wah pedal guitar solo. But don’t be misled by the song’s penchant for glistening power-pop; it’s far from happy-go-lucky, containing lines about “suffering” and “drifting away”. Listen in below.
