Tennis: Take Me Somewhere
Vintage rock/pop duo tennis just released another new gem off of their forthcoming release Cape Dory (out in late January). Tennis is the husband and wife duo of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, who claim they ironically named their band after an “elitist rich man’s sport,” yet they started writing music doing the totally non-elitist, multi-cultural practice of sailing along the North Atlantic Coast for 8 months. AHEM! Still, forgetting all that – Tennis craft sweet, throwback early sixties garage/pop jams, with Moore’s guileless vocals slipping on to the summery surf guitar chords like a pair of Nautica dock shoes onto bronzed Caucasian skin. Highly anticipate this duo’s Fat Possum debut.
