Tennis System
Tennis System offers lots of fuzz and noise on new single “Shelf Life”

The tiny, disco-ball-flickered stage was packed with instruments, cables weaving intricate webs between piles of amps and stands and rigs. I didn’t envy the untangling the sound guys would have to do later. April + VISTA took their places behind their respective instruments. April George’s ethereal crooning bloomed, filling the space. She delivered a beautifully […]
