Listen to Tennis’ New Song, ‘Easter Island’
If you're looking for a little pick me up, Tennis have just the song for you.
"Easter Island" (below) is the perfect combination of thoughtful lyrics and calming melodies over a pop beat that will instantly put you in a good mood. The band, composed of musical couple Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, wrote the song in San Diego and was inspired by sailing and travel.
“All of the places I reference in the song are places Patrick would like to sail to,” Moore told T: The New York Times Style Magazine. “Whenever I write a song about something else it takes me months, but when I write about sailing, it practically writes itself.”
This isn't their only sailing-themed song. The Denver duo were greatly inspired by sailing when they made their 2011 debut, Cape Dory, which was written after college while they lived on a boat for eight months.
Tennis are heading out on the road at the end of the month, launching their tour in Denver on April 25. The 20-city run will take them all over North America through May and will close in Kansas City, Mo. on May 22.
