Tennis, The Lexington, London

Married couple Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore were on the high seas when they wrote the songs which have brought Tennis across the Atlantic, on a promising ripple of blogosphere acclaim. Their eight-month voyage along the US east coast makes this literal yacht rock, though they seem to have managed it by determined saving and dreaming, rather than the champagne lifestyles of the 1970s soft-rockers the term normally implies.
