[SINGLE REVIEW] Hooton Tennis Club – P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L.P.I.E.R.R.E.

Liverpool four-piece, Hooton Tennis Club, have shimmy-shaked their way into introducing playlists in the past year, following the bands recent support tour with King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard. Their latest track, "P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L.P.I.E.R.R.E" is a perfect example of their scrappy, yet charming alt-rock sound to which they owe their popularity. Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Highest Point in Cliff Town’, due for release 28 August, "P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L.P.I.E.R.R.E". is an ode to summer, with a snappy chorus that playfully spells out the title of the song.

The single couples a hazy guitar riff that sways in and out of a lazy, carefree bass-line, which perfectly embodies a British Indie pop-flavour. A ramshackle drum-kit and nonsensical lyrics act as an endearing reminder of the unique bands oddball antics. "P.OW.E.R.F.U.L.P.I.E.R.R.E" is a perfect teaser for their upcoming album, which, if the single is anything to go by, will make for a perfect summer soundtrack.
