Tennis is a trio led by husband and wife duo Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley who caught the indie music world with the cheeky delight of their first album, Cape Dory  an album both written during, and inspired by a sailing trip up and down the East Coast of the United States.  The album was full of breezy summer melodies and bright ear candy and they seemed ill equipped to progress any further as a band.  Enter Young and Old , the 2012 follow-up produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. It’s a match made in heaven, as both Alaina Moore’s Billie Holiday-esque coo and Riley’s melodies find a perfect match in Carney’s 60’s garage psychedelia inspired production. Check out “Traveling” and you’ll be sure to fall in love
