Tennis System releases new video "Ungrown," playing The Echo residency in June

Punkgaze trio Tennis System, who built an empire of sound in the DC and LA scenes, released their newest video for "Ungrown," the third track from their 2014 album Technicolour Blind. Produced by and featuring Erica Terenzi of Italy's dreampop team Be Forest, the video matches swerving guitars and sun-blistered vocals with nostalgic memories simmered in psychedelic color. This release comes two weeks shy of Tennis System's long-awaited residency at The Echo. Catch them each Monday night in June with local alternative acts new and old, including United Ghosts, Blood Candy, Teenage Wrist, and THE FLASH HITS.

When interviewed by Free Bike Valet on what to expect for the residency, Tennis System's Matty T said: “We’re going to be trying out new songs, playing a lot off of our latest release Technicolour Blind, some off of Teenagers, and some really old ones. Each week will be different. I don’t want to give too much away, but I can assure you won’t want to miss one. Each one builds off of the week prior.”

Tennis System release "Part Time Punks Session"

Over here at the Deli's imaginary headquarters we're big fans of noise pop band Tennis System, who back in 2011 released the mini-LP "Teenagers", one of our favorite local releases of that year. They've been a bit quiet as of late (presumably working on a new full-length?), but to alleviate some of the wait time they've partnered with PaperCup music to release a live recording of one of their last appearances at The Echo, in which they performed as part of the Part Time Punks series that runs there every Sunday night. The five-song EP features a handful of new cuts, all of which truly capture the essence of their stark, yet glistening live performances. It will only be available at a limited run of 500 vinyl copies, and the first hundred will receive a translucent blue vinyl copy.
