Coming into the OV loft tonight are Los Angeles locals, Tennis System, at 7 pm. A band that had a reputation for shutting down shows due to the wall of noise reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine, is now getting recognition for their noisy, dream pop romanticism. Influenced by Nirvana and the Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as the romantic nature of Wavves and Best Coast, the band has a melodic sound, "full of woe, optimism, and yearning."
Tennis System will be coming in to promote their new release, "Teenagers". You will hear defiance, reminiscent of their influences, but with a catchy undertone that will make you dance and sing along. This record will build from a noise experiment, to a shoegazy sound, and ultimately end up with the catchy stylings of "Hey, We Tried". We like that this record shows the band's variety as well as provides an experience for the listener. Come by and check Tennis System out, and pick up the rekkid.
