Alaina Moore made fun of her husband ,Patrick Riley, for playing tennis in college. She said it was an elitist rich man’s sport, and apparently the only way to really squash this little spat was to take up an even more exclusively Caucasian sport. Thus the two spent eight months sailing and exploring the North Atlantic coast and writing music together that documented their experiences. They named their duo after the recreational activity that sparked this voyage, Tennis. This particular track, Marathon, is instantly endearing and focuses on some the couples experiences on their journey to the mecca of waspy fun. Tennis has a uniquely sweet and sad sound that makes you want to hear even more about Alaina and Patrick’s adventure….elitist sports win this round.
