Tracks: Menace Beach - Tennis Court
Leeds' Menace Beach unveil new single "Tennis Court", set for release this coming September.
I'm not going to bang on about who all the members also play in, if you don't already know read a previous post we've done on the band, moving forward this is Menace Beach and they're looking set to release "Tennis Court" with Memphis Industries this coming September.
"Tennis Court" shares some obvious production qualities with that of Hookworms and if you've read a previous post you'll know why. The track's ebbing guitar riffs and fuzzy feedback drive along to a backdrop of floating synths, and with the contrasting vocals of Ryan Needham and Liza Violet, we've got a noise-pop diamond.
Menace Beach are probably one of the most under-rated bands currently about and if this is the first time you've heard anything from the band, we suggest you give their Lowtalker EP a spin. You can grab a pre-order of "Tennis Court", paired with "Lowtalkin'" featuring Joanna Gruesome's Lan Mcardle on vocals, from Memphis Industries.
