Ten Fé have been busing themselves in the studio working on a follow-up to their 2017 debut album Hit The Light.
The London-based outfit have shared new single ‘Not Tonight’, affording us a first glimpse at how the new record is shaping up. While now a fully-fledged five-piece outfit with Rob Shipley (bass); Johnny Drain (Keys) and Alex Hammond (drums) coming on-board full-time last year, the chemistry between songwriters Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan – evident throughout their debut – continues to shine bright in this latest offering. Lush, expansive and cinematic, their brand of ‘indie-music-to-dance to’ continues to blend Springsteen-esque guitar lines with uplifting, Screamadelica-era style vibes and all delivered through the band’s uplifting popcraft. Brooding tension ricochets off euphoric heights and heavenly vocal harmonies, while the production of long-time collaborator Luke Smith adds characteristic electronic flourishes and motorik groove. Living in a sonic world of their own, Ten Fé prove yet again to be masters of doing their own thing.
Sounds like that new record is shaping up very nicely indeed.
