TENNIS SYSTEM OUT WITH NEW ALBUM LOVESICK
‘Lovesick’ finds Tennis System channelling years of determination, frustration, and musical and personal growth into a collection of songs that achieve the band’s full potential and chart new sonic territory. Made up of Matty Taylor (guitar/vocals), Sam Glassberg (bass), and Garren Orr (drums) Tennis System are a power trio with an emphasis on power, capable of conjuring a storm of noise and melody that would make Kevin Shields proud. While uncertainty and self-doubt are common lyrical themes on Lovesick, there’s also conviction–the desire to make the most of the time we have and follow the most fulfilling path, even if it’s an unconventional one. Taylor explains, “everyone finds something they fall in love with, for me it was music. I’m always searching for that feeling I had as a child discovering it for the first time. Even though so much of this album is about frustration, at the end of the day it’s really about having a passion for something.”
‘Lovesick’ perfectly captures the compelling blend of towering shoegaze and driving punk that defines Tennis System’s sound. ‘Rotting Out’ showcases that kinetic side, opening with a pulsating post-punk bass line and thundering drums before exploding into a hook-filled chorus.
