Things are shaping up nicely for Hooton Tennis Club‘s highly anticipated debut LP, Highest Point In Cliff Town, which shall be with us on August 28.
Easily one of the year’s most joyous and treasured findings, the Wirral foursome are back with a super new single, ‘P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E’. Typically languid, lo-fi scrappy guitar pop brilliance, it’s jam-packed with ramshackle, endearing alt-rock riffs, cryptic lyrics and a supremely sing-a-long, spell-a-long chorus. While Pavement comparisons abound, there’s an unquestionable and quintessentially British indie pop flavour to their sound. ‘P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E’ is a marvellous reminder of (or introduction, if you’re new) Hooton Tennis Club’s sun-soaked, carefree and odd-ball pop antics.
The Bill Ryder Jones produced album Highest Point In Cliff Town is out via Heavenly Recordings on August 28. Check out the new single ‘P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E’ below, with more over here, too.
