Menace Beach’s Juggernaut New Track Is Like A Comet On Collision With Earth

Fuzzy Leeds crew Menace Beach only released their debut album ‘Ratworld’ – “gritty” and “low-slung” according to NME’s review – in January, but they’re already moving onwards and upwards. A new EP ‘Super Transporterreum’ will be released on September 25 via Memphis Industries, and if its title track in anything to go by, could be the best thing the group have done so far. Its name is taken from a feverish hallucination suffered by co-founder Liza Violet and apparently features “three bass guitars simultaneously doing a Brian May riff”. Maybe that’s why it sounds like a comet on a course to collision with Earth, or maybe that’s down to its juggernaut chorus; the song’s name repeated over and over in a swirl of urgency and grungy guitars. Either way, it’s an unstoppable, brilliant next step.
