Indie pop group Tennis is ready to release their crucial second album. I say crucial because this is an important album for a band like Tennis. With their debut, they popped in the indie scene mostly thanks to “Marathon” and the romantic story behind the music (husband-wife, recorded the album while sailing together for 8 months). Was it just a lucky strike or can they avoid the sophomore slump and become a mainstay?

Their second album, Young & Old, will be produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, and he hates bad music, so hopefully he’ll make sure this one lives up to the expectations. If “Origins” is an indication, it should definitely be an album worth adding to the collection.

Young & Old drops February 14th.
