For our viewing pleasure, Denver indie-pop dwellers Tennis released the video for their latest B-side track "Deep in the Woods" alongside their newest Patrick Carney-produced single, "Origins" (out now via Forest Family). Be patient when you click "play" above - track takes about 16 seconds to kick in.

In a recent Rolling Stone article, Singer Alaina Moore explains that "Deep in the Woods" is based on Shirley Jackson's novel "We Have Always Lived in a Castle." "It is the story of two sisters, devoted to each other to an extent that borders on mania," Moore says.

It features two disturbingly close sisters living in total isolation, braiding each other's hair and participating in unmentionable acts together, all while looking extremely blasé about it all. The video, paired with the Tennis' lighthearted vocals and sugary disposition, adds a blithe subtext to a life seemingly full of perpetual melancholia. Although the segregated life may be a little drab at times, what better way to keep yourself occupied than to kill people and find arduous ways to dispose of their bodies? Sounds like a severe case of cabin fever to me. Check out the video below:



Don't forget to check out the band's Patrick Carney-produced sophomore LP, Young and Old, when it hits stores on February 14 via Fat Possum.
