Tennis (made up of husband and wife team Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore) return with their fifth full length.
Swimmer is a tour of the darkest time in their lives. But it is not a dark record. Named for the feeling of suspension and upendedness that characterized this period, it is the story of deep-rooted companionship strengthened by pain and loss.
These songs carried Tennis through grief. It is them at our most vulnerable, so they kept a small footprint, recording everything themselves in their home studio. Tennis sound fresh as ever on Lead track Runner, a romantic, groovy synth explosion that puts Moore’s soprano on full display.
