Tennis are a 3-piece lo-fi surf-rock group from Denver, comprising a husband-wife duo and a drummer. They went on a long sailing trip, got back, formed a band and then wrote songs about sailing. Good story eh?

The music these guys make is SUPER summery – so if it’s cold where you are, listen to their song at the bottom of the page and let it blow away the winter.

Patrick (the husband) has been kind enough to swing by and give us this top 5 – so have a listen why don’t you?

Over to Patrick:

I really hate prioritizing one band over another since my preference in music changes day to day. That’s the best part about music, it’s subjective and always changing. Does anyone have a tattoo of a band they loved in high school and 10 years later still feel the same? Impossible!

Here’s my tentative top 5 to be tattooed on my leg and hopefully appreciate in 10 years:

1 – Fleetwood Mac – Mystified

2 – Grandaddy – Crystal Lake

3 – Spiritualized – You know it’s true

4 – Devon Williams – Slight Pain

5 – Built to Spill – Twin Falls


Here’s the list – press play and the tunes will play through in order…

The Devon Williams number isn’t on YouTube, so go and buy the vinyl here:


Or listen on Spotify here:

Fleetwood Mac are ace.
