Talltale Gets Over Heartbreak With a New Hobby on “Tennis Club”


For the past few years, Canadian electronica artist Talltale has been making waves as an independent artist.  Her witty lyrics and distinct vocal stylings have taken her very far in a short amount of time, enabling her to win Best Electronic Song of 2018 in the Canadian Songwriting Competition, Artist to Watch at the EMAs, and a nomination as Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.  She has also performed at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, as her latest album A Japanese Fever Dream took off in a major way.  Continuing to grow and build herself as a pop artist, Talltale gives us “Tennis Club,” which further cements her reputation as a “promising pop writer.”

Filled with clever tennis puns, “Tennis Club” is a lighthearted attempt at getting over someone.  Backed by a sparkling 80s synth-pop production, Talltale tells the story about how she took up tennis to heal from a breakup.  Throughout the song, she mentions how she is not one for sports and despises tennis, but welcomes this new distraction.  She nonchalantly sings, “I joined a tennis club to get my mind off of you / That’s what the self-help books all told me to do,” hoping that this game will make a breakthrough.  You can check it out below.

About the single, Talltale shares,

“I had been going through a rough time trying to get over someone, and I think in those situations you can get so desperate that you’ll try just about anything to distract yourself!  There are a lot of sad and serious songs written about this topic, so I thought it would be fun to do a more humorous take on it and write about joining a tennis club to get over the break-up.”

You can listen to “Tennis Club” on platforms like Apple Music, SoundCloud, and Spotify.
