MP3: Tennis – “Is It True”

Listen: Tennis – “Is it True”

Acclaimed Colorado duo Tennis has released a new single, the Brenda Lee song “Is It True.” Alaina Moore explains why they chose the cover:

“Brenda Lee has been a great source of inspiration for me. We stumbled across the song “Is It True,” a less popular single she recorded later in her career and loved it not just for her more mature, crackly voice, but for the randomly awesome inclusion of a very young Jimmy Page on electric guitar. The song is such a jam, we really enjoyed the chance to record it ourselves. Despite the limitations of recording it on a 4-track cassette, and then having to mix it in a pinch on an 11 year old lap top, that crashed regularly, all the parts we love are there.”
