Menace Beach, the Leeds based duo of Ryan Needham and Liza Violet, have this week announced details of their second album, Lemon Memory, due early next year along with some tour dates, news came in the sharing of a brand new, and excellent new single, Maybe We’ll Drown.

Lemon Memory will be the follow up to their excellent 2015 debut, Ratworld. Discussing their ambitions for the record, Liza notes, “The one ‘rule’ thing we went into the album session with was to keep in mind that sometimes doing The Opposite is much more interesting.” Maybe We’ll Drown certainly sounds very little like the 90’s-slacker rock of their debut; fusing the staccato rhythms of Cate Le Bon with the wonky organ sound of The Horrors, Menace Beach create a claustrophobic, almost aquatic soundscape, matched neatly by the songs repeated lyric, “maybe we’ll drown, maybe we’ll all drown.” A hugely promising return, Lemon Memory is shaping up to be an intriguing departure for a band who just seem to get more interesting with each new track; it’s also going to have a scratch and sniff cover, so it could be the best smelling and best sounding release of 2017.

Lemon Memory is out January 20th via Memphis Industries. Menace Beach tour the UK in February, click HERE for details.
