Watch Nude Beach Levitate a Goat in ‘Some Kinda Love’ Video

Nude Beach Some Kinda Love Video Tour Dates

In the new video for Nude Beach’s rip-roaring “Some Kinda Love,” the Long Island-bred boys do their thing on a small stage while an off-camera bro narrates via on-screen text. Tom Scharpling, the real Tom Scharpling, writes and directs the clip, which begins earnestly enough. Biographical bits such as, “Chuck and Ryan met when they were in fifth grade,” and, “The band really likes pizza” lead the story, but soon enough, the guy runs out of things to say, and we get lies about levitation and dating drama. SPIN, on the other hand, has not run out of things to say about Nude Beach. “Some Kinda Love” hails from their heartland-punk opus II, which we reviewed at length, and the band were recent Breaking Out stars as well. Also, do revisit the trio’s beer-guzzlin’ clip for another II highlight, “Radio.” Nude Beach hit the road next week, and will be playing several dates with experimental rock giant Roky Erickson.
