Hooton Tennis Club - Highest Point in Cliff Town

Screen Shot 2016-04-15 at 13.26.39

Hooton Tennis Club released their debut album 'Highest Point in Cliff Town' via Heavenly Recordings on August 26th 2015.

Hooton Tennis Club sing about the small details of life. Theirs is a world in which curious observational lyrics abound; poetic riddles and wry nuggets that contort the banality of everyday existence while never succumbing to cynicism. Quite the opposite in fact: Hooton’s songs are bathed in sunlight, and find romance where others see squalor.
Their debut album Highest Point In Cliff Town is the sound of the summer of adolescence slipping into the autumn of adulthood. Here the wit of Kurt Vonnegut and twisted storytelling of Wes Anderson collide to tell tales of banal jobs, relationships, memorable parties and passing characters. The song titles alone read like the opening lines of classic novels not yet written: ‘Something Much Quicker Than Anyone But Jennifer Could Imagine’, for example, or the F. Scott Fitzgerald-esque ‘And Then Camilla Drew Fourteen Dots On Her Knees’ and ‘Kathleen Sat On The Arm Of Her Favourite Chair’.

These knowing titles belie a keen ear for a song. Make no mistake: this is classic underdog indie music - melodic, fragile, wonky, witty, poetic, pop. Definitely, defiantly pop.

The album features the bands four singles 'Jasper,' 'Kathleen Sat on the Arm of Her Favourite Chair,' 'P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E' & 'Always Coming Back To You.'

Reviews

“Few recent debuts have felt quite so enjoyable."
MOJO - ★★★★

“Top titles and strong hooks on this indie debut."
Uncut - ★★★★

“Best of all, the songs are as good as their titles: 1990's slacker guitar rock played with wit, charm and confidence .”
The Sunday Times

"The hit rate is impressive: the gently psychedelic Jasper is anthemic, while suburban-recluse groover P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E is agreeably perverse.”
Q Magazine - ★★★★

"Hooton Tennis Club have produced a debut that's utterly irresistible: a summer soundtrack that makes staring out of the train window significantly less mundane.”
DIY Magazine - ★★★★
