Ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Ratworld’ in the new year; Leeds duo Menace Beach have unveiled ‘Tastes Like Medicine’, the third track to be lifted from the LP following ‘Blue Eye’ and ‘Come on Give Up’.
‘Tastes Like Medicine’ harks the mind back to 90’s college era with its rollicking drum sequences and slackly delivered dual harmonies from Liza Violet and Ryan Needham; the band have an ever evolving sound (and guest members) flirting with electro and psych previously; but ‘Tastes Like Medicine’ with all its rock simplicity feels like their most potent sounding effort thus far.
Menace Beach will release ‘Ratworld’ on 19 January via Memphis Industries. The band will play London’s Sebright Arms on January 29. Go check them out.
