Indianola releases B-movie homage video for new single "Too Good To Be True"

One of the toughest things to do when writing about classic music is figuring out where it falls on the genre scale. How do you classify artists like Roy Orbison or the Righteous Brothers, whose music falls under the catch-all AM radio species of "oldies"? Regardless, that's the kind of sound Indianola have emulated on their latest single "Too Good To Be True", although Mississippi-born songwriter Owen Beverly has always had a crooner-like bend to his music. As Indianola, Beverly will release his debut LP Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye in May, with "Too Good To Be True" leading the tracklist. The album will follow the song's style of taking from all different classic genres, from the crooner and doo-wop age of the Fifties to the psychedelic Sixties and the soft-rock Seventies. You can hear those influences mesh on "Too Good To Be True" in Beverly's voice, the haunting strings that sound like they come from a Mellotron, and the slowed-down drums that echo with the Spector-like sound. The video for "Too Good To Be True" pays homage to the B-movies of these eras by mashing scenes from horror films into a well-done montage. Take a look for yourself below, and don't miss Indianola when they return to Nashville to play the High Watt on May 2nd. - Will Sisskind
