About Tenniscoats

Tenniscoats are a Japanese indie avant-pop duo comprised of Saya and Takashi Ueno. With the help of an ever-shifting lineup of backing musicians (the likes of which have included LSD-March, Eddie Marcon, Secai, Popo, Saibou Bungaku, Tim Barnes, and Tetsuya Umeda), the Uneos make the kind of gentle, willowy, cerebral tunes that bring together austere chamber folk instrumentation and interesting production methods. The pair's prolific nature and affinity for collaboration have led to a large and sonically diverse discography, including highlights like 2009's Two Sunsets, a joint album with Glaswegian indie legends the Pastels, 2012's Papa's Ear, one of several beautiful albums made with Swedish band Tape, and their extensive Music Exists series that collected their hard-to-find sounds over five individual volumes and culminated in a box-set repackaging in 2020.
