Playlist: Du Tonc

Du Tonc

Du Tonc

The Du Tonc disco boys have finally put together a playlist for us!

Du Tonc are still one of our favourites, which is handy as their new single, ‘Wonderland’ (which also features on the playlist), is one of their favourites too.

V – La Nouvelle Epoque
It’s pretty apparent we love the 80’s, can’t get enough of this gem. Modern 80’s vibes (if that makes sense).

Severed Heads – Dead Eyes Opened
If there is one track we’ve love to get the parts for and re work, it’s this.

Beyond The Wizards Sleeve – White Cow (Erol Allan Rework)
We’re big Wizard and Erol fans. This is stunning.

Charlie – Spacer Woman (Vocal)
More 80’s spaced out funkiness.

The Cure – A Forest
Think this tracks still get’s better overtime you listen to it.

Du Tonc – I’m On Fire (Bruce Springsteen Cover)
The only cover we’ve done and possibly our our favourite track.

Tears For Fears – Head Over Heals
Tears for Fears are a big inspiration to us, this track is genius (also featured in a rather awesome film).

Johnny Cash – Personal Jesus
Love the Depeche Mode version, but this is just filthy.

Du Tonc – Wonderland
Our favourite song we’ve written.

Midland – Final Credits
Effortless perfect dance floor record.

Sisterhood – Tunnels (Bicep Remix)
Still cane this, get’s better with each listen.

Sounds like: Kavinsky, ROOSEVELT, Summer Heart, MGMT, Day Wave, Washed Out, Yeasayer, Miike Snow, RAC, Goldroom, Set Mo, Luke Million, Neon Indian, Classixx, Holy Ghost!, Blood Orange

Ten Fé – Overflow

Ten Fé - Elodie

Ten Fé

Making our emotions seriously ‘Overflow’, Ten Fé are back with a new track and album announcement.

A song about lost love, this time Ben takes the lead. To be honest, it doesn’t really matter who leads, as these guys seriously know how to tug at our heartstrings regardless.

Recorded in the studio built into the Berlin HQ of Kompakt Records in Berlin with Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), their 11 track LP is due for release on 3 February 2017

Ten Fé – Elodie

Ten Fé - Elodie

Ten Fé – Elodie

The bosses are back in town; romantic indie rock duo, Ten Fé.

Their latest release, ‘Elodie’ is a beautiful and modern love song. As the name suggests, ‘Elodie’ is lyrical and melodious.

Ben and Leo’s vocals play off one another’s throughout the track. As on ‘In The Air’, Ben is on lead vocal once more, narrating in a rich Springsteen baritone a conversation between two lovers.

Written the night before the band left London for Berlin to record with producer Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), it is the first track to be recorded featuring the complete Ten Fé live line-up – with Rob Shipley on bass and Luca Romano on drums.

‘Elodie’ will be released by Bad Life.

Sounds like: Bruce Springsteen, The Rapture, CliffLight, War on Drugs, The Cure
