We named Beverly’s debut album, Careers, Album Of The Week in the summer of 2014, and today the band announced that their sophomore effort is due out in the spring of 2016. “Crooked Cop” is its first single, a song about falling fast and hard for someone who doesn’t deserve your affection. Guitarist and vocalist Drew Citron explained the connection between crooked cops and frustrating crushes to Spin:
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.
