Oh, Beverly Do…
It’s Valentine’s Day, or Singles Awareness Day… whichever side of the fence you’re on. We hope your day is full of love, joy, happiness, and all that ridiculous stuff Cupid injects into you with his arrows. I’m feeling the love without being a target, because Frankie Rose (<3) is putting out new music… in a new band! Miss Rose is used to being a part of a bigger project (she used to play in Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls, The Outs), but has been putting out solo albums under her own name for the past two years. The trend breaks with Beverly, a duo with Rose and touring bandmate Drew Citron. Citron also plays in New York’s own Avan Lava. The first taste of Beverly is a crunchy yet sugary candy bar of a pop song called “Honey Do.” It sounds like it could’ve been lifted from the early ‘90s blueprints of The Vaselines, but it’s distinctly their own, and just straight up lovely. Citron writes, Rose sings, and together they have pretty great chemistry. “Honey Do” hits stores as part of a vinyl-only Kanine Records compilation. A full LP is expected sometime this year. If “Honey Do” isn’t sweet enough for you, then no amount of Russell Stover chocolate is going to satisfy your sweet tooth.
