For anyone who ever fantasized that She & Him is a real husband/wife duo, meet Tennis. The Denver pair’s button-cute beach tunes (inspired by a seven month sailing sojourn) combine dreams of polo-clad love affairs at sea with the novel quality of reverb-drenched tunes you can actually hum along to. They’re a throwback that works, thanks to Alaina Moore’s sincere crooning and the band’s doo-wop harmonies. The East Coast is the best coast, after all. With the fitting La Sera and Holiday Shores.
