Live Photos: Tennis Channels their Relaxed Pop in New York

After starting their own label and sailing from San Diego to the Sea of Cortez, the Tennis team of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore returned with a sterling fourth album, Yours Conditionally. Released early last month, the record still thrives on ‘50s girl group grooves and tight melodies, but feels far more immediate, comfortable and less fussy than its preceding LPs—a possible outcome of Tennis self-producing. Paste photographer Drew Reynolds visited the band during its stop at the Bowery Ballroom last week to capture portraits, soundcheck and a live show (including a pretty great disco ball). Tennis is currently touring in the U.S. through early June, including shows with Spoon and Local Natives.
