Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan, aka Ten Fé, will release their debut album Hit The Light. on February 3, 2017. The 11 track LP from the London-based duo follows the release of their acclaimed singles, ‘Make Me Better,’ ‘In The Air,’ ‘Elodie’ and ‘Turn.’
‘Overflow’ is an urgent and vibrant electronic-indie track; an emotional, driving, ode to love lost. Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan’s interwoven vocal, guitar and synth lines create a lush bed of harmony through the track. This time Ben takes lead vocal, delivering in a rich baritone how he “waited a while for love to spark, next I know I’m in the dark”, before ending the song on a defiantly optimistic note, that “love is there so let it overflow again.”
Recorded in the studio built into the Berlin HQ of Kompakt Recordsin 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.
Watch the music video for ‘Overflow’ BELOW:
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.
