Tennis is comprised of couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The Denver-based duo began writing music together as a way to document their time living at sea on a small forty-year-old sailboat. The result was their first release, Cape Dory (2011), which saw them quickly become one of the most alluring and blogged-about bands of the new decade.
Moore and Riley followed Cape Dory with Young and Old (2012) which The New Yorker called “as winsome as it is ebullient,” and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart, CMJ Top 200, and SoundScan’s New Artist Chart. In 2013 the Small Sound EP debuted on Communion Music, followed by thousands of miles on the road and a support tour with sister super-group Haim. In 2014, the duo released Ritual In Repeat. Produced by Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Jim Eno (Spoon), and Richard Swift (The Shins), this full-length album showcases a band in full control of their sound and craft. Pitchfork has said their sound embraces “bittersweet, autumnal melodies that pair[ed] well with lyrical darkness and a touch of fuzz.”
