Tennis Releases New Song “Forbidden Doors”
American indie pop duo Tennis, consisting of Alaina Moore (vocals/keyboards) and Patrick Riley (guitar), released the third single called “Forbidden Doors” from their upcoming sixth studio album “Pollen” on February 2, 2023.
The track was written and produced by Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley.
Alaina Moore said of the song, “Sonically, Forbidden Doors filled out something essential that was missing from the record. I took my time writing lyrics that fit the world without altering it. The music gave me a sense of driving away from something. Patrick and I have done a lot of that-- trading one city skyline for another, releasing something to make room for what's next.”
The new album comprises 10-track and is set to be released on February 10, 2023. It is their first album in three years since the 2020 album “Swimmer”.
- Alaina Moore said of the album, “We wanted to write a big album, something suited for radio, but our songs don’t follow conventional pop structures. Instead of choruses with universal themes, I write with a specificity that is new to me, narrowing in on the smallest details of our lives. The more we try to broaden our scope, the more we turn inward.
To keep ourselves from falling into old habits, we used instruments and gear that are new to us. We work alone and Patrick engineers. The sounds he creates are as foundational as any part he writes. We resist the urge to over edit or do too many takes. Unlike previous albums which have been more wall of sound, we make a point not to overpower my voice with a dense mix.
We named the album Pollen. It is about small things with big consequences: a particle, a moment, a choice. It is me in a fragile state; sometimes inhabited freely, sometimes reacted against. It is striving to remain in a moment without slipping into dread. It is about the way I can be undone by a very small thing.”
