Menace Beach - 'Tennis Court' music video

Menace Beach's video for 'Tennis Court' was directed by Tom Hudson of Pulled Apart By Horses. The double A-side 'Tennis Court / lowtalkin' is out now on Memphis Industries.

Menace Beach consist of Ryan Needham (vocals, guitar), Liza Violet (vocals / guitar / synths), Nestor Matthews (drums, also in Sky Larkin), Matt Spalding (bass, also in You Animals), MJ (guitar, also in Hookworms), and an ever-changing group of friends and acquaintances. From the looks of the band's line up, this Leeds duo have quite an impressive bank of friends and acquaintances to draw from.

Both 'Tennis Court' and 'lowtalkin'' were recorded, produced and mixed in Spring, with MJ at his Suburban Home studios in Leeds. One of the afore mentioned friends and acquaintances featured is Lan Mcardle (Joanne Gruesome) who you can hear shouting “with nothing in it” in ‘Tennis Court’, and “lowtalkin’” in... well, 'lowtalkin''

Whoever happens to be in the band that day, they always create delicious lo-fi with just the right amount of ups and downs. 'Tennis Court' is much more psych influenced in its rolling verses and intermittent blurts of noise, whereas 'lowtalkin'' is plain old punk rock. Needham's vocals naturally carry that Californian blasé drawl, and the VHS influenced video compliments it perfectly.

You can see Menace Beach at Southsea Festival 20.09.14. We'll be there! Read what other bands we'll be seeing by clicking here.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

The B-side of their recent scorcher of a single, 'Vent' was filmed at Hermitage Works Studios by John Clay AKA Clark Kent's Rock n Roll Revue.

We're addicted to this sneakily little funky number. And we definitely want to get high with all our mothers.

Those pesky Table Scraps have written a slacker anthem, and created a visual prayer to the beloved loser gods to go along with it.
