Welp, Happy Valentines Day Everybody!
Looking for a good Valentines Day record for your night? Tennis is the right choice and chances are they dropped it today on purpose (they've quite literally done it before). This baby is a lush, smooth record. It's nostalgic as a midnight drive with friends. Sneaking outside with your friends to sneak a puff of a cigarette. It's romantic. Swimmer is a late night dip in the pool. A silent smile to yourself when you're in the moment. It's nighttime. It's youth. It's the streetlights you pass on a bike alone. It's the cold night breeze. It's the thoughts that bring you home, as time seems to be lost to you once you arrive. It's the goofy impulse to go lay outside in the grass in the middle of the night. It's fun. It's skinny dipping. It's a quiet rush.
Looking back on Tennis' discography, I think they've done it. They've crossed "that line." They're no longer the band forgotten until they come back around, they're in the conversation. They make simple, yet heartwarming music. It's easy to love and simple to dismiss. But if it hits you, it hits you. Cupid's arrow, let's call it.
