Released: 2nd July 2021
Summer must be on the way as the air feels fresher, the leaves look greener, and Ten Tonnes is releasing sounds that’ll go down better in sweaty clubs than even the most extravagant foam party.
Lead single ‘Everything You’ve Got’ is one of his best to date, with a chorus that’s going to hit different when those live shows return. This is Ethan’s ode to his favourite 80s indie records, with that jam-packed sound feeling reminiscent of classics from years gone by.
There’s no room for bad vibrations as this is a release focused on nothing but good times – made up of four short, sharp tracks that each have a certain likeable charm.
Go has a constant readiness as if it were an engine being revved on a start line, ready to take off at any moment once that green light comes. It’s immediately followed by ‘Forget It’, which slows a to a blissful, acoustic-led pace – the ideal sort of thing for impressing mates with your guitar skills while sitting in a field with a spontaneous picnic.
The closing track ‘Girl Are You Lonely Like Me’ is full of a unique character, too, completing the set of new creations that absolutely knock it out of the park. Is it meta that he sings about a ten-tonne weight in this one? Maybe, just maybe.
The EP is back-to-back uplifting tunes that are perfect for all the sunny days and brighter times (hopefully) ahead; there’s no dwelling on the past, and the future is sounding very bright indeed.
So come on (come on, come on) and fire up those summer parties; the music we need is already here.
