New Music Of The Day: Ten Fé – ‘Overflow’

When London-based duo Ten Fé were recording their debut album in Berlin, they were listening to a ton of bands like The Cure and Bruce Springsteen, and the Drive soundtrack. “These bass, drum and lush string-synth parts just came through quite naturally,” they say. You can totally hear Bruce’s up-tempo, highway-ready drums on their latest offering, ‘Overflow’, along with Ben Moorhouse’s bittersweet baritone, and nostalgia-tapping synths that’ll probably chime well with anyone who enjoyed Netflix’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things: it’s instantly familiar in the best way.

Today the pair – Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan – announce the release of their debut album ‘Hit The Light’ on February 3, 2017. It was recorded in the Berlin HQ of Kompakt Records with Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, Delphic), who they say “put a lot into” the melodic synth part. “It’s really what brings emotion into the groove of the track. It darkens the drums and bass, which are pretty upbeat.” Take a listen above and find tracklist and tour details below
