TEN FÉ, Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan, have revealed “Twist Your Arm”, produced by Ewan Pearson and lead single from their debut album, Hit The Light. The forthcoming release is due out Friday, February 3. Their career trajectory has seen them busking on the London Underground, through a bedroom in Birmingham, to eventually recording in Berlin.
“Twist Your Arm”, with the pound of that emphatic drum is, somehow, joyous in its melancholy. The keyboard undercurrent is also a tad haunting. The vocals go from almost spoken to almost falsetto. Dynamics see the track dip in the last minute or so, the vocals now like the collective voice of a church choir. Rousing yet, also, mournful.
