Tennis was born of husband and wife duo Patrick Riley and Aliana Moore's nearly seven-month sailing trip, which consisted of selling all their possessions, purchasing an old sailboat, repairing it, and cruising up and down the eastern seaboard. Upon returning home, they began writing music together as a way to document the history of their shared experience. The result was Cape Dory, an intimate and concise recollection of life on a 30-foot sloop.

After the success of the album and touring for the better part of a year, the pair returned home and realised what was initially a bedroom-recording project had evolved into a band. The challenge of a second record was upon them, but songwriting came quickly and in three months the duo had most of the material for their new album.

If their debut was a narrative of a specific time and sensation, their highly anticipated follow-up, Young and Old, is its antithesis. The album retains their sparkling indie pop aesthetic but expands the sonic and thematic elements to include a greater range of styles and ideas. Recorded in Nashville with Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, Young and Old embraces a grander landscape of ideas and feelings, revealing a riskier, looser version of the band.

In the end, it doesn’t so much tell a story as it does chronicle an evolution. It reveals a growing sense of liberation, of musicians coming into their own together. Its melodies are enchanting yet it’s all infused with an edgier tone than Tennis’ debut, a logical next step in the band’s career.
