We can’t get enough of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley’s debut album Cape Dory when the sun’s out, but the seafaring couple have really made our day with a brand new cover of Brenda Lee’s ‘Is It True?’, available now as a freebie download using the widget below.
As Alaina explains, “Brenda Lee has been a great source of inspiration for me. We stumbled across the song ‘Is It True’, a less popular single she recorded later in her career and loved it not just for her more mature, crackly voice, but for the randomly awesome inclusion of a very young Jimmy Page on electric guitar. The song is such a jam, we really enjoyed the chance to record it ourselves. Despite the limitations of recording it on a 4-track cassette, and then having to mix it in a pinch on an 11 year old laptop, that crashed regularly, all the parts we love are there.”
Tennis are back in the UK next week for a couple of shows:
