Bio

Critically acclaimed group Tennis is set for the March 10 release of their highly anticipated fourth full length album, Yours Conditionally, on Mutually Detrimental via Thirty Tigers. The 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.

In celebration of the forthcoming album, the video for the track “In The Morning I’ll Be Better” is premiering at Noisey; watch the video 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.

Now based in Denver, Moore and Riley began writing music together as a way to document the history of their time living aboard a sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory. Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old, which The New Yorker described as “winsome as it is ebullient” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart and #1 on CMJ Top 200, where it remained for three straight weeks. The album also debuted on Soundscan’s “New Artist Chart” at #1, remaining there for nine consecutive weeks. Their newest record comes on the heels of the group’s most recent release, 2014’s Ritual in Repeat, which received rave reviews from The New York Times, NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Fresh Air,” TIME, Vogue, Pitchfork, The FADER, Entertainment Weekly and many more. The band has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Conan” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
