Beachy buzz trio Tennis have a knack for picking just the right songs to cover. Back in June we heard them do Brenda Lee’s “Is It True” and they’ve just dropped another, a cover of “Tears in the Typing Pool.” Where Broadcast’s original was lo-fi and choppy, Tennis bring a lush sheen to this beautiful wash.

They also covered the Zombies’ “Tell Her No” a few months back. It finds the group relatively peppy, updating the pysch-rock classic with good vibrations all around. They keep posting these things to Soundcloud without any more info, but we suspect there’s a covers EP or something on the way. Listen to both songs below.
