Liverpool’s Courting have shared their brand new track ‘Tennis’, as well as announcing a UK tour.
“Tennis is a paypig’s personal redemption narrative, set in ‘the city’, and told in two parts,” the band explain. “A twisted tale of two lovers’ back and forth, bound by cricket, bodybuilding, and money. A story as old as time.
“We named the song Tennis as a logical (but unrelated) sequel to our two previously released sports-related songs. To us, this felt like a natural ending to that idea. Dynamically, the second part of the song is supposed to represent a shift in tone for the character in which they realise their own worth and leave the situation that is set within the first part of the song.”
