Laid back indie-pop couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley, better known by the moniker: Tennis, return to the public arena with an easy going, DIY soul groover. ‘One Night With The Valet’ packs in keyboard, drums and a fuckload of synthesiser, with Moore’s voice at it’s breathy, supernal sweetest over Riley’s immaculately unblemished production.
Not even nudging the two minute ribbon, the song’s lyrics abstractly contemplate temptation with imagery of white doves and scattered pearls, a spotless vision that neatly shapes the record’s clean aesthetic, complimented further by a promo video that sees the vocalist cavorting among goats, sheep and horses on a blue sky, sun-drenched country farm as twilight descends.
