The Nearly Deads - Invisible Tonight

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
What's in a name? For the Nearly Deads, lots of tongue-in-cheek fun but little truth in advertising. Contrary to their moniker, indie rockers the Nearly Deads are very much alive and ready to rock summertime playlists with Invisible Tonight, one of the strongest entrants in the warm weather airplay sweepstakes to date.

The band does have a bit of a connection to the "undead" though; a video for the original version of "Never Look Back" (a different version is found on Invisible Tonight) features rampaging zombies and, nearly 7-million views later, is the reason why the Nearly Deads fan base is called Zombie Nation.

The Nearly Deads are fronted by singer Theresa "TJ" Jeane, a vocalist who stylistically has a lot in common with classic rock hit maker Pat Benatar, an attribute especially noticeable on soaring rocker "Brave," "Invisible Tonight" and break-up song "I Said," the album's first single.

"I Said," where TJ lays down the law to a soon-to-be ex with lyrics like "I said we're over! I can do this by myself!" is typical of the empowerment on display as Jeane plays a confidently strong but not overbearing woman throughout while the band, similarly, rocks out melodically but forcefully.

Ironically the (originally) zombie-infused "Never Look Back" is about the only moment where TJ sounds vulnerable; the song is recut here as "Never Look Back (Reanimated)," a piano-and-strings version of the tune that showcases the strength, beauty and emotiveness of her voice.

With Invisible Tonight likely to soundtrack much of the upcoming season it's probably a good idea to go ahead and join Zombie Nation now before they have to come looking for you. Invisible Tonight drops on June 24.
