Tennis – Is It True? (Brenda Lee Cover)

June 30, 2011 by  

Before they release their new single ‘Take Me Somewhere’ on July 18, Tennis are giving away a cover version of Brenda Lee’s ‘Is it True?’.

The cover also comes with this explination from the female alf of the duo Alaina Moore…

“Brenda Lee has been a great source of inspiration for me. We stumbled across the song ‘Is It True’, a less popular single she recorded later in her career and loved it not just for her more mature, crackly voice, but for the randomly awesome inclusion of a very young Jimmy Page on electric guitar. The song is such a jam, we really enjoyed the chance to record it ourselves. Despite the limitations of recording it on a 4-track cassette, and then having to mix it in a pinch on an 11 year old lap top, that crashed regularly, all the parts we love are there.”

Anyway, you can get it on the tiny widget below…
