Following the release of her cheeky new single “Tennis Club” Canadian electronica artist, Talltale, drops the official music video. The music video follows the lyric’s lighthearted approach of comparing the game of love to a game of tennis.
“It started with a loose lyric idea of ‘I learned more about love in tennis club than I ever did from you’ (since a score of zero in tennis is called “love”),” Talltale explains. “Then I built out the song to keep – what I hope to be – an emotionally honest core, while encasing it with more tennis puns and a shimmering 80s synth-pop vibe instrumentally.”
Racking up over 330K streams as an independent artist, Talltale has cemented her sound and her standing as one of Canada’s most promising pop writers. She has garnered support across numerous editorial playlists with her clever, sincere lyricism, rhythmic melodies, and distinct vocal sound, which has also earned her previous work Best Electronic Song of 2018 in the Canadian Songwriting Competition, Artist to Watch at the EMAs, and a nomination as Electronic/DanceArtist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

I grew up in Alberta, but spent most of my life in British Columbia – I also spent a lot of my summers in Britain as I was lucky enough to have immigrant parents with the capital to go visit our relatives. The amount of time I spent overseas makes it hard for me to say I feel fully Canadian, but it does make me feel typically Canadian as so many of us have mixed parentage. My parents defined another divide in me as I feel inexorably pulled to both science and the art; my father being a doctor and my mother being a school teacher. I studied both in university and now work on making healthcare software during the day, then write/read/draw/paint/dance in my evenings. My global wanderings, my education, and the fact that my appetite for media could be described as ‘voracious’ means my frame of reference is pretty varied. It’s hard to say that I have a favourite music genre, rather I am always seeking sounds that convey a sense earnestness an honesty.
