Tennis – Deep In The Woods

December 15, 2011

When Patrick Carney came aboard, it was clear that Tennis was looking to shake things up. As mentioned on a previous post, it seems as though he’s been able to bring the two-person wall of sound mentality that has made he and Dan Auerbach so successful, and translate it into surf-pop, adding depth and punch to Tennis’ signature light-as-a-feather jams. But Tennis’ reinvention doesn’t end there; while there’s always been a dark underbelly hinted at by the resigned nostalgia of Tennis’ sound, it remained deep in the background of their sonic persona. But, with videos like this, the warm croons of Alaina Moore evoke something entirely new.
