New Jersey rock band Can’t Swim is getting ready for an European tour that will take place this spring. It will indeed have them sharing the stage with the likes of State Champs, Knuckle Puck and Jimmy Eat World among others. In anticipation, the band has shared a brand new single, called “In Between”. The single premieres in the form a beautifully shot, black and white video that conveys the song’s raw emotions perfectly.
“Often times, I get sidetracked and focus too much on tricky word play and mysterious metaphors to finish up the lyrics of a song. Perhaps it’s a way to feel less vulnerable. Knowing (hoping) the meaning of what I’m trying to say might go over (or under) a few people’s heads. With “In Between” I did my best to do the opposite, I tried to have the lyrics sound like I am simply having a conversation with an old friend.
Musically too, I think it has a very meat and potatoes type of approach. In the studio, we had the conversation of it being simple and straightforward and what we could do to combat that. But than after listening to it for weeks, we decided that’s exactly what we liked about it. In short, don’t mess something up with trying to be “creative” the best ideas come from somewhere else. Just gotta grab em when they do” – Chris LoPorto (vocals/guitar).
