Menace Beach with a new single Song: Tastes Like Medicine on Memphis Industries the Leeds-based fuzz rockers are everywhere at the moment and recently played to a packed Rough Trade Record store in Nottingham . That’s why we were positively ecstatic to wake this morning to discover the band have unveiled the video for their single ‘Tastes Like Medicine’. The premiere follows the release of the Menace Beach’s debut album “Ratworld”, which came out on Memphis Industries last week.

The track is a charming piece of noise-pop that despite all its buzzing distortion, is still anchored on an infectious melody and duet vocal from Ryan Needham and Liza Violet.

The video was directed by the band’s good pal and fellow Leeds rocker Tom Hudson, more commonly of Pulled Apart By Horses. Hudson took an unenviable amount of homemade footage of Menace Beach while they were on tour with his band last year and played around with some child-like animation upon his arrival home.

He describes the process like this: “I’ve already done a couple of music videos for them before, ‘Drop Outs’ – an eyeball popping/face melting animation – and a lo-fi VHS video for the following single ‘Tennis Court’. When they asked me to produce a video for their new single ‘Tastes Like Medicine’ I thought I would try and combine the two together.”
