Memory Foam Share New Album 'Steel Magnolias'

Chris Cudby / Thursday 9th June, 2022 1:12PM

Having successfully melted our earholes with such mind-bending student radio hits as 'Choo Choo Train' featuring Baby Zionov, 'Jimbo' and 'Burn Up', Memory Foam have today unleashed their debut album Steel Magnolias. Co-produced with Michael Logie (The Mint Chicks), mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac) and featuring absolutely beaut cover artwork by Grant Sheridan, the team of Yuko Miyoshi, Samual Moore, Sinisha Milkovic, Samantha Webb and Guy Innes' inaugural long player is a gleefully wild ride of untamed yowls (sung in both Japanese and English), sci-fi punk riffs, pummelling percussion and squalling synth mania. An instant party whenever they hit the stage, you'd have to be some kind of sucker to miss the Tāmaki Makaurau crew live — ushering in the new age of Steel Magnolias with shows across Te Ika-a-Māui this month, plus the two night Punk It Up V extravaganza in early July...
