You guys have probably been hearing of the band, Tennis lots lately, especially with their hit this past summer, “Marathon”, which had huge success on the indie blog and radio circuit. Minimal, lo-fi, and beautiful melodies of yesteryear, you can’t help tap your feet and close your eyes when that song comes on.
Tennis is Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, a husband/wife duo, sold all of their belongings and set out on an eight month sailing expedition of the North Atlantic Coast. Relying on the wind to take them where they did not know, they ditched TV, radio, internet, all of the modern distractions and took in the light of the stars and chill of the ocean. During their adventures they wrote music and documented their experiences, which became Tennis, and their album to be released January 18th, “Cape Dory”. They are touring right now, and for the Angelenos, they’ll be at The Echo on February 4th. I was stoked my friend (and sailing enthusiast) got the tickets, see you there!
