Published Jul 26, 2013Shoegazing Los Angeles pop crew Tennis System have a new album on the way in Technicolour Blind, and while it doesn't yet have a release date, the band have shared their new track "Suicide."
The song is a swooning dream-pop number made up of cinematic guitars and murky, reverb-hazed vocal coos. As the title indicates, it was apparently written around the same time as a friend of the band committed suicide.
"We wrote 'Suicide' closer to the end of recording the new record. At that time, I found out that a close friend of mine committed suicide," frontman Matty Taylor explains. "Just before everyone arrived for practice that day I was playing a song I had been working on and one by one the other bandmates started playing along and we worked it out into what you hear now."
