Some bands don’t mess about. Having released their debut album, ‘Ratworld’, in January of this year, Menace Beach’s fizzing, over caffeinated creativity needed another outlet. So, in between touring with the likes of Drenge and The Cribs and becoming one of Johnny Marr’s new favourite bands, Menace Beach found time to head into the Suburban Home studio with Hookworm’s MJ to record a brand new EP.

With its title coming from a flu-fever hallucination Liza experienced while on tour, the title track ‘Super Transporterreum’ perfectly sums up Menace Beach’s off-kilter approach, all effervescent melody and hurtling fuzzed up guitars, not to mention the juddering half-speed choruses that, according to Menace Beach, feature “three bass guitars simultaneously doing a Bryan May riff.”

The ‘Super Transporterreum’ EP is a distillation of what Menace Beach have previously called their “own grubby little ‘Ratworld’”, this time with added technicolour. With band leaders Ryan and Liza’s unmistakable vocal interplay coming to the fore, their lopsided surreal and esoteric creativity means they have created a sound that is unmistakably their own.
