Off the back of their latest LP, ‘Future Perfect, Present Tense’, Ten Fé rolled into North London’s The Garage to kick start that Bank Holiday feel-good factor with a bang.
One thing about Ben Moorhouse and Leo Duncan’s band is they add a splash of colour to life. It is a splash of an Olympic diver: precise and tidy.
This set, with ‘Won’t Happen’, ‘Isn’t Ever a Day’ and ‘Not Tonight’, is delivered by a band who look like they have walked in straight off the set of Age of Aquarius. Long, loose-fitting clothes and long hair and beards, they look like they could operate in any post-60s era.
Tonight was full of warmth and life-affirming vitality. Moorhouse and Duncan share the spoils of the soft-natured beast that is Ten Fé.
Inoffensive, all-encompassing and bang on the money with their welcoming sound, they are a band to be treasured.
On ‘No Night Lasts Forever’, the synchronisation between guitars and vocals is so mouth-wateringly absorbing. Whilst superlatives can be thrown at this set, it is with a pinch of laid back salt that these words should be handed out.
Tonight feels like a freeze-frame of that feeling of fuzziness that comes in finding happiness in life’s simplicities. Ten Fé take those simplicities and shake them into a glorious tonic to the otherwise mundane slur of everyday life.
