W Magazine is premiering the video for the track “Modern Woman” from critically acclaimed group Tennis’ forthcoming album Yours Conditionally (out March 10 on Mutually Detrimental via Thirty Tigers). Watch the video at http://bit.ly/2kSWJ57.
The new record was composed both on land and at sea during a five-month sailing trip through the Sea of Cortez. Upon returning, Tennis’ husband-and-wife team of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore self-produced the record in a small cabin in Fraser, CO. It was mixed by Spoon’s Jim Eno at Public HiFi.
The group also recently premiered the video for the track “In The Morning I’ll Be Better” at Noisey; watch it at http://bit.ly/2h2LuZv.
This summer the group premiered their first new music from the record, “Ladies Don’t Play Guitar,” hailed as “a smolderingly sardonic feminist anthem perfectly suited for social climate of today” by Consequence of Sound, while Stereogum noted that “even through her sardonic sneer, [singer Alaina] Moore’s voice is as melodious as ever, and the song itself has that classic Tennis pep in its step. It’s perfect for catching sun on the high seas, but is also much needed social commentary on the expectations placed on female musicians.” The Verge added that the song is “a great introduction to their sound if you’re unfamiliar: a wistful piano line, a biting, sarcastic vocal from Alaina Moore, and a little fuzz to keep things grounded.”
In celebration of the new album’s release, Tennis will tour North America next spring. See below for a list of dates.
