A little under a month ago, we gave you "Pearly Gates," a first taste from The Men's upcoming album Tomorrow's Hits. Now the Brooklyn band have shared a couple more tracks, the lively "Another Night" and the frantic "Different Days."
Boosted by horns that wouldn't sound out of place on Van Morrison's Moondance, "Another Night" rollicks with a mix of classic R&B and good time rock 'n roll. The lyrics center on a long-term relationship in the middle of a rough patch, with singer Mark Perro optimistically begging for another chance and/or night. When he sings, "I gotta believe in something, that's all I can do," the music's soulful urgency makes us believe him all the more.
"Different Days" is a bit more in line with The Men's punk past, with clean production and a keyboard being the only outliers. Together, this pair of tracks offer an exciting taste of what we can expect from Tomorrow's Hits.
