Over the past year or so, you’ve likely come across a handful of posts on London-based indie pop duo Ten Fe. The duo of Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan won the attention of the blogosphere with the release of anthemic singles “Make Me Better,” and “In The Air.” Last month, the duo released the brooding music video for their ambient, R&B-leaning, plaintive yet restrained single “Turn,” off the duo’s forthcoming and long-awaited full-length debut Hit The Light, which is slated for a February 3, 2017 release through Some Kind of Love Records/[PIAS] Recordings.
Recorded at Kompakt Records Studios in Berlin with Ewan Pearson, who has worked with Jagwar Ma, M83 and The Rapture, Moorhouse and Duncan’s full-length debut reportedly finds the duo’s effortlessly meshing contemporary electro pop, Americana and the classic Manchester sound while thematically speaking, the material focuses on renewal and possibility. The duo’s latest single and their full-length debut’s second official single is the album’s opening track “Overflow,” is a shimmering 80s-inspired synth pop/New Wave track, complete with a tight motoric groove that lyrically focuses on a lost love. And while naturally being a bit wistful over the past, the song possesses a profoundly optimistic bent that reminds the listener that heartbreak is a reminder that you once knew love and will have it again many more times over.
