[PIAS Nites] present
With two lead singers and songwriters, each with their own distinct voice and songwriting style - and after the long journey the two have been on together - it is perhaps of little surprise that Ten Fe’s debut album ‘Hit The Light’, due out early 2017, is characterised by its diverseness. Each track on ‘Hit The Light’ stands independently, whilst the overall experience is balanced by the accomplished interplay between style and song. Their mix of Americana with darker, driving electronics, and vocal harmonies make the London band a genuinely exciting prospect. With Ewan Pearson’s (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture) production underscoring the forthcoming LP, and its trademark pulsating electronic grooves, Ten Fé have created an album that is fluid and varied.
DBFC mean every word. Striking out at the cynicism of the everyday, the duo – Manchester born David Shaw and Parisian Dombrance – seem able to cut straight to the heart of the matter. “What we sing about is the universal theme, which is love,” David explains. “As corny as it sounds, that’s in fact what we’re talking about: tolerance and love.”
Australian four-piece Confidence Man reveal their highly anticipated debut single ‘Bubblegum’. ‘Bubblegum’ is a joyful slice of imperfect pop, with flirty flutes, baggy grooves and sassy vocals leading Confident Man’s stand-out debut track. Their ecstatic live show has started turning heads, landing the band a national support slot with Chairlift and Aussie festivals including the coveted triple j unearthed spot on the Laneway Festival Brisbane bill.
