Tennis Talk "Yours Conditionally"
Wed, 22 Mar 2017 10:09:48
Tennis hails from Denver, Colorado. The husband-and-wife duo made up of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley make the kind of indie pop that is reflective of today's issues as well as a joy to listen to. On their new album, Yours Conditionally, the band speaks directly, if somewhat sarcastically, about feminism on "Ladies Don't Play Guitar" and "My Emotions Are Blinding". The band also has an odd association with sailing, considering singer Alaina Moore is, "afraid of the dark and the ocean." Their first record, Cape Dory, was created while the twosome sailed down the Eastern Atlantic Seaboard. This time around, in an effort to find what they had been missing, the duo took to the Sea of Cortez. ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Alaina Moore to discuss the band's seafaring voyages, get a sense of how an artist can make a difference in today's world, and to find out what it's like when a band strikes out on their own.
