Track Of The Day: Menace Beach - 'Fortune Teller'

Menace Beach are a Leeds-based duo consisting of Ryan Needham and Liza Violet, but occasionally become something of an alternative rock supergroup when joined by other names such as Matt "MJ" Johnson of Hookworms, Rob Lee of Pulled Apart by Horses, Nestor Matthews of Sky Larkin and Matt Spalding of You Animals. Needham was formerly in a band called Komakino, who were produced by former Mansun legend Paul Draper, who also occasionally contributes on backing vocals and guitar. Their latest EP 'Lowtalker' is a five track release that came out in January on the Memphis Industries label, and from it here is 'Fortune Teller'. Droning, ragged guitars meet dreamy harmonies, woozy organs and heaving shoegaze vibes on the lysergic uproar of what is one the EP's standout track.
