After months spent sailing the Eastern seaboard, husband-and-wife duo Tennis turned out Cape Dory in January, a debut album of nostalgic ’60s pop gems that reflected all that sunshine and fresh air. It was a slice of summer in the middle of the winter.
But Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore seem to have found their sea legs with brand-new single “Origins,” off their forthcoming album Young and Old (due out Feb 2012). It’s more grounded, with a hint of soul (bolstered by synthesizers and a horn section). It bodes well for tonight’s concert at the Crocodile; tickets are ludicrously cheap ($12) and still available at thecrocodile.com.
Tennis plays the Crocodile Dec 14 at 8pm.
