Erin Algiere
Tennis started with a sailing trip along the Eastern seaboard.

Tennis looks like if Vampire Weekend modeled for Urban Outfitters, and it sounds — if it's possible — like happily suburban ennui. That should help you picture its fairy-tale story, which begins with a boy, a girl and a sailboat and finds the first two taking the third one across the Atlantic, writing songs about it before featuring in blurbs like this one. They signed to Fat Possum roughly one year after all the whimsy began. There's husband and wife Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley, and James Barone rounds out the threesome's lush, candy-coated surf-rock, which recently hit another milestone: Earlier this year, Tennis excerpted its latest, Young & Old, in front of both Jay Leno and David Letterman — and millions of viewers.
