Watch: Tennis Perform Songs from Forthcoming 'Cape Dory'

December 9, 2010 5:40 PM ET

The Denver husband-wife duo Tennis stopped by Rolling Stone's office recently to perform a few songs from their forthcoming full-length Cape Dory. The album, which comes out on January 18, is full of shimmering, classic pop that was inspired by a seven-month sailing trip the couple took together. (Cape Dory's name comes from the boat they lived on.)

Check out the prom-ready love song "Pigeon," the uptempo "Bimini Bay" and "Marathon," which — despite its lyrics focusing on frustrated plans — brims with energy.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
