Tennis - Never To Part
Premiere from the new Young And Old LP
The new Tennisreleases in a couple short weeks on that black black holiday you love/hate known as valentine’s day. In the meantime this fruitful week of leaks has given us this one a bit early as well. Keep your eyes peeled, I promise there’s one more I’ve been waiting on for tomorrow.
The new Young and Old LP sounds like Tennis, and on first listen I’m having mixed feelings. They do change up their sound a couple of select tracks, most notably in major soul vibe on Petition, and in the slightly darker tones and drums heard here on Never to Part. Track 4, Traveling sounds like the perfect pop combination that they debuted with and caught them such acclaim their Baltimore 7” .
So its a solid sophomore release, but on first listen I can’t help but feel they played it a little safe. Not whole lot of change ups here, and definitely nothing surpassing their first tracks. But I’ll suppose I’ll take safe over bad.
Tennis - Young and Old LP is up for pre-order directly from the band here with all sorts of beer koozies and tee-shirts available as well.Source: what.cd
