Tennis got into music making like any other indie duo - the musicians caught the bug after a yearlong sailing trip. Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley's Atlantic voyage inspired them to get all melodic, and upon returning home, the married couple started writing sea-sparked pop songs. The result? Tennis' debut album, Cape Dory.
Tennis' latest album, Young & Old, includes the stylings of the band's new drummer, James Barone. It's a bit more blues-y in nature, but equally as charming. Catch Tennis at RecordBar May 12. Doors open at 9 p.m. The 18-and-older show costs $10, $12. Watch Tennis' video for "My Better Self," a track off Young & Old, below:
