Power pop legend Paul Collins (The Nerves, The Breakaways, The (U.S.) Beat) will be releasing Feel The Noise, his follow-up to 2010’s The King Of Power Pop, on 9 September. The album will be available on CD, digital and limited edition colored vinyl via Alive Naturalsound Records.

The album kicks off with the title track, a raw rave-up that owes a bit to 70’s pub rock and punk, before settling into an enjoyable song cycle of hard pop gems: “Only Girl” reminds listeners that the British Invasion was where most first-wave power poppers took direct inspiration; “Don’t Know How to Treat a Lady” shakes and shimmers with fuzz guitar and tambourine; “For All Eyes to See” could well be a lost Wreckless Eric B-side, while “Baby I’m in Love With You” channels Buddy Holly. Album closer “Walk Away” is a heartbreaking bit of doo-wop, rich with vocal harmonies and a 1950’s guitar hook courtesy of producer Jim Diamond.
