Tennis escapes an “existential tailspin” to write third album, “Ritual In Repeat”
An hour of piano. An hour of guitar. An hour of reading. An hour of writing. Go on a walk. Repeat. This strict schedule doesn’t seem like a birthplace for creativity, but for Denver band Tennis, it helped overcome months of writer’s block and an “existential tailspin” to write their third album, “Ritual In Repeat.” On a recent Friday afternoon, Tennis’ practice once again comes to a halt and Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley are both leaning over a red keyboard in their South Broadway practice space searching through different effects.
