Ten Fe Tickets
A British electronica and indie band, Ten Fe has been producing music since 2012. Ten Fe, sometimes styled as Ten Fé, are probably most well known for their track “Elodie”. Based in London, the group is made up of just two members: Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan. Both are singers and multi-instrumentalists. In most cases, the member of the band who has written the song in question will provide the lead vocals. Like the Beatles, the lead singer is relatively unimportant, however, because the true sound of Ten Fe lies in the way the duo harmonise, often with unexpected notes and subtle variations. Their style has been compared to Bruce Springsteen in the past, but the pair's musical output owes just as much to Britpop and the baggy scene in the 1990s as it does to American power rock.
Ten Fe's career milestones
Moorhouse and Duncan decided to make music with one another after they met at a house party in Haringey. According to Duncan, the pair instantly established a rapport and found that they possessed a similar taste in music. Originally performing as a busking duo, the pair soon began experimenting with shoegaze rock before deciding to write material individually, but to come together to produce it. “Time” was released in 2013 on Bad Life Records. Their first track, it was well received by online fans and the single was lauded by Lauren Laverne on her BBC6 Music Radio show.
As a result of the success of “Time”, Ten Fe was invited by the BBC to take part in a session at their Maida Vale studios. Gathering a greater following all the time, the session paved the way for better concert bookings in the capital. By the following summer, the pair had taken to the stage at both the Great Escape Festival and Bestival.
An EP was Ten Fe's next release. Produced by Luke Smith, renowned for his work with Depeche Mode, it was called 50/50. After 50/50, the pair quit London for a time. Residing in Berlin, Ten Fe started work on their debut full-length album with a new producer, this time, Ewan Pearson. The resulting work came out early in 2017 and was entitled Hit the Light. It featured the single “Elodie” as well as “Make Me Better” and “Twist Your Arm”.
Hit the Light was promoted by a long tour. The band travelled around Europe throughout the summer of 2017, including many dates in the UK and Germany. The tour also took in performances in the US, such as at the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
