[Watch] Tennis Perform "High Road" on Conan

Denver indie-pop outfit Tennis are no strangers to the late night TV scene, having performed on both Leno and Letterman since releasing their sophomore LP Young & Old this past February. Last night, they continued their late night circuit, performing their song "High Road" on Conan, which you can watch above. As a bonus, the band even performed the single "My Better Self" as part of Conan O'Brien's web exclusive Summer Music Series. Check out the replay of that performance after the jump.

Young & Old is out now via Fat Possum.

[Watch] Tennis - "My Better Self" (Official Video)

The official video for the new single from Tennis has emerged and it's a rather simple affair. Adding a visual accompaniment for the track "My Better Self" which features on their recently released album, Young & Old, the video sees the band performing the track with some hazy cut shots to a rather empty room full of a bemused looking audience. It then gets a little more odd with some synchronised dancing and dark looking laughter going on. Peep it at the top.

[Watch] Tennis - "It All Feels The Same" Live on Letterman

Another notable performance from the late night circuit last night was a performance from Tennis who visited the Ed Sullivan Theater and David Letterman to put in a performance of "It All Feel The Same". Only last month we saw the band on Leno performing "Origins" for the masses, so let's see what you make of their live rendition of their Young & Old album opener. Thanks once again to The Audio perv for the video support.

[Watch] Tennis - "Origins" Live on Leno

Tennis took to the stage of Jay Leno's late night slot to put in a great performance of their track "Origins" which features on their recently  released sophomore album Young & Old. Alaina Moore's voice does the work whilst the rest all falls beautifully into place. Give the performance a watch up at the top of the page via, of course, The Audio Perv.

The band are currently out on the road which continues into the summer. Jump over here to see if they're playing a city near you!

[Watch] Tennis - "Origins" (Official Video)

Today, Denver, CO indie pop band Tennis released their sophomore album Young & Old, and to celebrate the release, the group has unveiled the brand new video for their single "Origins." Premiering on, the video sees masked gunmen chasing after an unknown man, all of whom are on skis, through the chilling Rocky Mountains, in a scene that could be taken directly out of old James Bond reels. When asked about the grainy footage, which was all shot painstakingly by the band's friend Richard Law, Tennis leading lady Alaina Moore said, "He [Richard Law] is a master at making original footage look like found footage, if you like that sort of thing, which we do. None of these shots were borrowed," she says. "Every ridiculously old looking frame was painstakingly shot during a snowstorm in the Rockies." Check it out above.

[Watch] Tennis - "Origins" (Live Video)

Yesterday we got to hear a new track from Tennis and their forthcoming LP Young & Old, which is due out on February the 14th. How romantic. Today the band release a live video recording of them performing "Origins" and the beautifully shot video is simple in its delivery but a great watch, and a lovely taste of what's to come from the album. It was recorded during a performance in Portland, OR in December at the Doug Fir Lounge. Hopefully we'll get another little preview before the Patrick Carney produced LP drops on Valentines day.
