south carolina dreaming

south carolina looks just wonderful, if this music video by tennis is anything to go by:

vintage ladies dancing in their underwear with gratuitous feathers, viewed through a magic lantern, progressing to parrots and fireworks by the 2 min 30 climax of this enchanting apparition. if that’s what south carolina looks like then i’d like to visit. if it sounds like this too, then i’d like to go even more.

if i could bring this vision to the next dirtyconverse disco i totally would. i’m currently LOVING this song, as well as the other two on the tennis myspace page, which i’ve had on repeat for the past few hours, brightening the drizzlegrey.

best news of the day: you can freedownload ‘south carolina’ and ‘marathon’ HERE. super amaze.

unsettling news of the day: according to this interview, the owner of the band’s ghostly vocals (alaina moore), “was only allowed to listen to Christian rock and musicals growing up”.

file tennis near dum dum girls (less polished version) and besty coastyyy (less repetitive version), if you like. although as a colorado husband-wife set-up they are more like a 1960s- style girl group with a male chaperone. delightful, and wholesome. and on the playlist for saturday.
