tennis has already released one of the year’s strongest albums in yours conditionally, a masterful collection of pop songs that are alternately aching and searing; ahead of a rather extensive fall and winter tour that will stretch into 2018, the duo have unveiled “no exit,” a new, standalone track.

like much of their catalogue, “no exit” glimpses back at progenitors for sonic cues, this time culling from the dance music of yore.  although the song displays a marked increase in beats-per-minute, vocalist and keyboardist alaina moore refers to it as “a dance song for my inner nihilist.”

suffice it to say, “no exit” is still as lyrically potent as anything else in the tennis canon.  take a listen below.
