Wintry match for Tennis


Although a bit more melancholy than the band’s previous release, “Young and Old” is still a good representation of the relaxing, dreamy music Tennis has become known for.

 A few upbeat tracks reminiscent of their debut album “Cape Dory” pop up here and there, such as “Traveling” and “Dreaming,” but this album tends to shy away from the sunny beach theme and takes on more of a gloomy aesthetic.

More appropriate for wintertime listening than “Dory,” “Young and Old” is a perfect fit for the season.

As far as sophomore albums go, this one is pretty impressive. Tennis incorporates more instruments and contemplative lyrics and somehow still pulls off a simple, soothing sound in a mature way. Go for a drive and bring “Young and Old” with you.

You won’t be disappointed.
