Beverly share new single “Crooked Cop,” playing Knitting Factory w/ Dan Croll after UK tour

Beverly are wrapping up work on their second album — which will be out spring 2016 — but have just shared a new single, “Crooked Cop.” They’ve been playing this one live for a while, and its descending chord pattern owes just a smidge to Big Star. Singer/guitarist Drew Citron says this about it’s lyrical themes:

Sometimes it seems like cops can get away with anything, and that’s what it feels like to be led into the weeds by a crush. “Crooked Cop” is about a deceitful relationship, and how hard it can be to get a handle on someone you love. It was a fun way to write a song that’s been written a million times – using cops.

It’s hooky stuff and you can listen below.

The band are gearing up for a UK tour opening for Maximo Park but will play Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on December 2 with Dan Croll. Tickets are on sale now.
