Powered by thundering drums, two guitars awash in distortion, and rumbling bass, Tennis System are the loudest band in D.C. today, full of the same raw energy of their predecessors Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, and D.C.'s own (The Sounds of) Kaleidoscope. But there's more to this band than raging soundscapes. Listen hard, and through the noise, threads of melody emerge; these are picturesque pop songs, full of woe, optimism and yearning, even delivered at times in sweet falsetto. Tennis System doesn't sound like any band you know. It sounds like the band you should be listening to.
My Bloody Valentine, The Beatles, Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, The Kinks, (th' sounds of) Kaleidoscope
