New Music Alert: Stream Tennis’ “Ritual In Repeat”
Husband and wife duo, Patrick Rile and Alaina Moore, continue to make sweet pop music under the moniker Tennis with their new album Ritual In Repeat. The couple told Relix that their third full-length was not an easy endeavor: “It’s been a really long, arduous quest. We’ve been all over the map with the recordings and even our writing. We started off so narrow and only wrote lo-fi surf pop. Everything had a surf-beat. We only had three instruments and everything was so specific that now, as we’ve grown, we are trying to challenge ourselves and transform musically.” The beautiful new album, produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon) and Richard Swift (The Shins), highlights Moore’s innocent voice with killer retro pop sounds. Stream the album via Pitchfork before it is officially released September 9th.
