June 16, 2017 may have passed us by many moons ago, but that evening is etched deep into my memory, thanks to an immense headlining set by TEN FÉ at Popscene in San Francisco. I’d been waiting an eternity to catch the English duo live, particularly after they released their magnificent debut album Hit The Light, and their on-stage delivery of its songs far from disappointed. As we inch our way closer to the end of 2017, TEN FÉ has returned, not as a two piece, but officially as five piece after all their touring adventures. Their first new song as such (and their first new material since Hit The Light) is a tune named ‘Single, No Return’, and it surely fills the hole in my heart during the band’s long quiet absence from the new music scene. The mid-tempo, road weathered strummer carries plenty of TEN FÉ‘s signature swagger and vintage rock allure. The band will be playing their biggest London headlining show to date at Dingwalls come Thursday, November 23rd. Hopefully more new music is on its way, and they’ll make their way back stateside. You can also listen to ‘Single, No Return’ via Spotify, here.

In but a week, TEN FÉ’s debut album Hit The Light will be arriving on my doorstep. That’s right, I’ve already eagerly pre-ordered the record, which is only proper after falling for each and every one of the English duo’s tunes for over a year. Let’s add Another Way to that list, an airy skipping, feathery light slice of synth glistening pop rock. It’s a heartwarming treat with a touch of retro nostalgia. The pair explain that Another Way, like prior single Elodie, was influenced by the films they were watching at the time. Those movies displayed bleak, expansive portrayals of America. It made TEN FÉ return again and again to the classic image of a character standing out on a deserted street in a small town, serenading the silhouette of a girl in a window. I’d love to be that silhouette. Pre-order Hit The Light digitally, here, or physically, here, before its release on February 3rd.

In less than a month, TEN FÉ’s debut album will be arriving. This is most certainly a cosmic event that I’ve been eagerly looking forward to. The English duo stoke the flames of my excitement with a fresh new tune named Twist Your Arm, one of their most propulsive thrusting songs to date. Twist Your Arm, which also happens to be the lead single from forthcoming LP Hit The Light, fuses analog with digital in a retro sliding manner. Soul, blues, and gospel also imbue their epic sweeping electronic track. Twist Your Arm was produced by Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, Delphic). You can pre-order debut album Hit The Light via iTunes or Amazon.

Concrete news of a debut TEN FÉ LP is sweet music to my ears. After all, we’ve been fans of the English duo since their debut over a year ago. Along with the album announcement comes a brand new single named Overflow. This is a propulsive synthwave aria that certainly spills over with plenteous rich synths and baritone vocals. In some ways, Overflow feels like a partnership between Matt Berninger and Bear’s Den during the 80′s. TEN FÉ’s debut album Hit The Light is due to arrive on February 2013. Pre-order from iTunes and get Overflow instantly.

Turn is the least of what I want to do whilst listening to TEN FÉ’s sultry grooving, smoky swirling new jam. Other things I want to do: swing about, sashay in circles, slow slide across the room, close my eyes and lose it. The London duo take the Fleetwood I grew up loving in the 80′s and gives it a modern sonic twist on Turn, complete with dreamy languorous synths and a cottony rich disco accented atmosphere. Turn will be released on 7″ alongside a remix by Ewan Pearson through Rough Trade. Pre-order, here.
