I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is better than every song on Ritual In Repeat, which was Tennis' 2015 release, and one I enjoyed quite a bit.
"Modern Woman" is the first single in support of the husband and wife duo's upcoming 4th LP Yours Conditionally, due out March 10th. While technically their sound in general generates the "throwback" label, this track feels like it could be a cut from either of their first two records. It has the simplicity and relaxed tone that made them so universally appealing.
The beachy 60's vibe they employed at the start of their career faded into a more pop-ish sound on their last album, and I enjoyed the transition quite a bit, but at the end of the day it was missing something. "Modern Woman" was what it was missing. In a perfect world this record could be all three releases rolled into one, but even if it isn't, they haven't let me down before, and I don't think they'll start to anytime soon. Here's to another great record. Raise your glass. Are you raising it? Because I'll wait...
FINALLY. Thank you.
