TUNE Ten Fé - Another Way
Release Debut album, ‘Hit The Light’, on 3 February 2017 through SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS]
Announce UK and European live dates including Oslo in London on 9 March 2017
“up-tempo, highway-ready” NME, no. 2 Hype Machine, 5 million Spotify plays
Pleased to announce the debut album release by Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan, aka Ten Fé, ‘Hit The Light’. The 11 track LP from the London-based duo is due for release on 3 February 2017. This follows the release of their acclaimed singles, ‘Make Me Better’, ‘In The Air’, ‘Elodie’ and ‘Turn’, earlier this year, all hitting no. 2 Hype Machine and amassing over 5 millions Spotify streams.
Recorded in the studio built into the Berlin HQ of Kompakt Records in Berlin with Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), ‘Hit The Light’ is a highly accomplished album with a captivating concoction of styles. The record seamlessly fuses intricate contemporary electronics and the band’s signature energetic mix of Americana, Manchester baggy and soulful vocals.
Named ‘Hit The Light’ after the big theme of the album: coming from dark into light; an act of renewal. The album is the result of 4 long years’ of work, which has led them from busking on the London Underground, through a bedroom in Birmingham, to eventually recording in Berlin. The depth of their relationship, creative and personal, has seen them through. It’s no coincidence the name of this band means “Have faith”.
The LP takes you on a journey with the band, a monumental road-trip with Ben and Leo sharing the driving as they each take lead on their own compositions.
‘Hit The Light’ will be available through SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS] on CD (SKL004CD), Digital (SKL004DA1) and the LP version is a double vinyl LP (SKL004LP).
