Nude Beach- II

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Brooklyn-based Nude Beach are bringing back some old school rock 'n' roll with their new 10-track LP, II, which is available on Bandcamp. The vintage power pop sounds on this album are delivered with a bit of a punk spirit--much in the same way a band like the Undertones did back in the day. However, Nude Beach is what's worth focusing on, not their influences. This is mostly due to their energy in a lot of these songs, fronted by vocalist Chuck Betz who has a really great, raw delivery.
