Leeds' lo-fi duo Menace Beach are back with another single "Crawl In Love", lifted from their upcoming album Black Rainbow Sound.

Hot on the heels of announcing their third album Black Rainbow Sound, Menace Beach have revealed another single "Crawl In Love".

The chaotic combustion of synths and guitars are achieved yet again, this time in a warped spiral of screaming synths that will dominate on their forthcoming album.

Speaking about "Crawl In Love", Ryan Needham of the duo explains, "It’s tough to justify chucking another song with ’love’ in the title on the pile, but ’Crawl in Love’ is truly the most unabashed, chock-full of joy song we’ve ever written and it came to us at a time when the endless horror of these times seemed to be really upping its game on a daily basis. I really needed to counter all the negative slime in my head in some way so I just went full cliche hippy and started writing list after list that explored and celebrated all ideas of love in the universe, a search for every last drop I could think of. Writing this one really gave me the mental rest I needed at that time."

Black Rainbow Sound will follow on from 2017's Lemon Memory,

Speaking about their shift to synths from guitars, Ryan explained, "Liza has always made electronic music and has a very unique approach to what she creates on her synths so I knew she’d do something magical if she took the reins in the studio. Turns out she was planning a subtle-yet-hostile takeover all along anyway."

Black Rainbow Sound is out 31 August via Memphis Industries. Menace Beach tour the UK in October, and will perform at London's Oslo on 25 October. Find out more.
