Tennis – Need Your Love

American duo Tennis consists of husband and wife Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore. They just announced the release of their fifth album Swimmer, due out on 14 February. It was produced by Claudius Mittendorfer, who worked with Panic! At The Disco and Parquet Courts before.

Need Your Love is the indie-pop sensations’ new single. A beautiful song with up-tempo and slower parts, the latter with a distinct ‘70s vibe.

Alaina Moore says about the song: “Need Your Love is rooted in anger. I usually deny myself the emotion, but the music demanded intensity from me and I had a lot to be angry about at the time. I was letting go of unhealthy relationships – trying to find healing without closure. The song turned into an emotional purge. We used sparse instrumentation and tempo changes to reflect the isolation and relentlessness of my mental state. Despite all the heaviness, writing this song was a joyful experience. The music was resilient enough to handle our wildest ideas and we indulged every whim. It’s my favorite song Patrick and I have written.”
