The Can't Tells





Indie rock trio The Can't Tells playing Rough Trade this Friday (8.21)

Brooklyn band The Can't Tells have been delivering punchy indie rock since around 2006. Since their formation in Boston, they've relocated to Brooklyn and matured their sound (some of their best singles streaming below), featuring a DIY LP release in 2013. Their music hears influences of power-pop, punk, and rock, while still being dancey and fun. Their shows are known to get a little wild (with a few band injuries on record), so prepare yourself for what's sure to be a great time at Rough Trade this Friday night (8.21). - Sam O'Hara

The Can't Tells place 5th in our Best of NYC Poll + plays Pianos on 02.25

For The Can't Tells first full-length 'No Television,' the highly energetic rock band powers their way through a set of turbulent emotions: revealing a wealth of insecurities and anxieties set to an insistently pounding block of anthemic eagerness. From the title track's rocking buoyancy, to the somewhat creepy, angular closer 'Real Imitator,' these guys lay out their inner demons for all to see. It's an album that will keep you guessing to the finish. Just like their name implies, these are guys whose intentions may not be clear, but that's half the fun. Watch the hilarious video for 'Insincere' below and find out why they may be missing a band member when you see them play at Pianos on Feb 25. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

The Can't Tells placed 5th is our recent Year End Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists.

Best of NYC poll - JURORS' VOTE: Wet, Big Ups, The Can't Tells

This year 27 NYC "scene experts" (including booking agents from Bowery Presents, Webster Hall, Pianos, Cake Shop etc etc) helped us with our Best of NYC Poll 2013 for Emerging Artists by choosing their 3 favorite up and coming local acts. These jurors are comprised industry people who work with many local bands throughout the year (we'll publish the list soon), and their vote is the most influencial in determining The Deli's Best Emerging Artist of the Year.

Their votes this year produced a list of 60+ artists, which means that - as always - most jurors voted for different bands. But some bands appeared more than once in the "ballots": below we compiled a list of the artists who accumulated more points through the jurors vote only. Kudos to quirky Electro-Soul trio WET (pictured and streaming) for getting the top spot, and to Punk Rockers Big Ups and Indie Poppers The Can't Tells for getting darn close, tied in second place!

After crunching the numbers of all the votes that came in from Jurors, Deli Writers and Readers we'll publish the final results of The Best of NYC 2013 Poll for Emerging Artists - it should just take a couple of days.

Weekly Feature: The Can't Tells play The Delancey on 04.04

Crafting catchy lo-fi indie rock songs in the vein of Pavement and Lemonheads, recent Deli Artist of the Month The Can't Tells released their latest self-titled album in February via their bandcamp and since then have been performing all over Manhattan and Brooklyn. The trio’s simple approach to indie rock music (and killer live show) makes them easy to instantly connect with and get excited by, which is rare for a new band. Their newest EP will be self-released later in the year, but the band put out the single from it, entitled "Lying to Myself, streaming below. See these at The Delancey on April 4th with Boveda, Zula, The Regulars, or at The Deli's B.E.A.F. fest in late May. - Read Amanda Dissinger's interview with the band here.
