    It's a timely refresh of rosy-cheeked indie-pop mores.

    It’s 17 near-perfect minutes that whisk you from sparkling seas across soft, white sands to smoky late-night bars beneath torrential rain, full of soul notes that lift the rafters. It’s a tiny, little, beautiful adventure.

    It’s less formulaic and more freewheeling, seemingly feeding less off their influences while finding more of themselves.

    With their third release, the five-song Small Sound EP, Tennis complicate the easy breezy beautiful schtick with some positive results.

    But for all its wandering into uncomfortable territories, Small Sound preserves the core of Tennis’s charm, and it's savvy of the duo to (hopefully) consign their elements of feet-finding to a stop-gap EP.
  6. 42
    Small Sounds does, as promised, show a subtle and seemingly natural shift in their sound as it morphs into more soulful, Motown-inspired grooves.
