LA’s Tennis System cite an abiding love for Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and the Jesus and Mary Chain as their major musical influences. It is hardly surprising that their sound draws huge comparisons to these and other modern contemporaries too.
Not simply a homage to what has gone before, the foursome carefully add an injection of their own personality and a mish-mash of flavours to create enthralling reverb-drenched noise-pop. It is relentless, noisy and distorted, but shimmers with warmth and a melodious allure – well worth a moment of your time.
Back in October they released their debut album, Teenagers. You can stream / buy it on Bandcamp.
