The characteristically lush, squalling album pans over familiar thematic terrain for the band, delving into the modern, youthful dilemmas of isolation and longing, failure and persistence. But the band’s melodies are newly infused with the sting of recent personal loss.
Dubbed “one of the city's best live acts,” by LA Weekly, Tennis System recorded each song on the six-track “P A I N” live. Listen and you’ll get a whiff of the electric-shock energy of Tennis System’s epic shows.
lt’s Los Angeles that runs through Tennis System’s music like a thread, infusing it with sunshiny power chords and a brisk prettiness. It’s why Consequence of Sound called the band’s last album, Technicolour Blind “a beautiful ode to feeling really shitty.”
