Play Tennis

16 Jun

There are many qualities in Tennis “Origins” that gives the song a timeless feeling, but the main key is the songs simplicity.

With a repetitive keyboard driven backdrop, the melody easily gets lodged into ones head. Singer Alaina Moore’s voice is also simple, yet original and refreshing. Her angelic, ethereal pipes bring the perfect melancholy ache as she starts “Sensitive heart you’re doomed from the start.”

While mostly a simple pop performance, the song also bears a slight rock weight which rivals Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move.”
Innocent but bitter, young and old, Tennis show a duality of emotions hidden behind a mask of retro pop.

If Tennis is the name of the game, then be ready to play.
