Following up last month’s track “Tantrum,” “Can’t Let It Go” finds Expert Lovers pursuing a shimmering, guitar-based sound in the mold of The Replacements and Teenage Fanclub. “I can’t let it go,” the vocals repeat amidst the flourishing guitar work, with an enjoyably bass-heavy bounce around 01:50 that transitions steadily into guitar distortion and anthemic vocals. ’90s alt-rock nostalgia is apparent in this section and into the conclusion. “Can’t Let It Go” soars with consuming allure.
“Can’t Let It Go” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
