If you can picture in yourself on a beach, surrounded by clear blue skies, accompanied with a cocktail at your side and then seek the perfect soundtrack, look no further than “Take Me Somewhere” by Tennis. Alaina Moore’s calm, melodic voice takes you through a relaxing cruise of surf rock. Do not be surprised if the chirping guitar, tapping ride cymbal and light background organ transports you and your headphones to The Bahamas, and one thing is for sure; you will not want to leave.
However, although “Take Me Somewhere” possesses many fine qualities, it lets itself down by being over before it begins. After a lengthy intro and first verse the song barely kicks into life before it ends, just short of three minutes in total. Still, you cannot turn your nose up at quality and if this track is anything to go by, then the band’s debut album Cape Dory must be well worth a listen.
