Last week, Tennis returned to the CPR Performance Studio for the first time in over three years.

Since that 2012 visit, the Denver-based indie pop group has released the  "Small Sound" EP and last year's "Ritual in Repeat" album, both to critical acclaim. They have also been touring relentlessly, both with Haim and as headliners in their own right.

That touring schedule starts up again later this month with a performance at the Bluebird Theater on April 25, after which the songwriting duo of Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore will hit the road once again.

This time around, Tennis performed stripped-down versions of three tracks from "Ritual in Repeat," and caught up with Alisha Sweeney about returning to Denver after their brief move to Nashville, employing the members of The Centennial for their upcoming tour and their experience with avant-garde film director David Lynch. 

Stream the session above.

Songs performed:

  • "Never Work for Free"
  • "Bad Girls"
