London’s Alt Rock secret The Lightness Of Being release smashing track ”Can’t Keep”

The Lightness of Being is a 4-piece strong baseline filled band based in lustful London and they roll in the front door with ”Can’t Keep”. The band seems to make earth shattering alternative rock songs and mix them together like a sticky piece of gummy glue. The boys main influences are The Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age and everyday life in wet yet inspiring London City.

Can’t Keep” is about keeping lies inside and how unhealthy it is. The sound is so powerful and the band smash through with their signature brand that is great to hear. London’s clubs will be anticipating a huge crowd when they play live again. This is a wild ride and I enjoy each second while listening to ”Can’t Keep” from The Lightness Of Being”.

Set for release on the 3rd July, stream this track now on the growing Soundcloud music channel.
