Praise for ‘Hit The Light’
“Madchester meets Springsteen” Guardian ****
“Sparking songcraft” The Observer
“A stunning ride” DORK ****
“An impressive debut album” Evening Standard
“The album hits a sumptuous sweet spot between the rugged emotion of Bruce Springsteen, the synthy swirl of Jagwar Ma and the lightness of The Cure”
After Ben Moorhouse and Leo a.k.a Ten Fé released Twist Your Arm, their bluesy-electro-stomper produced by Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), which was NME’s New Music of the Day, Line Of Best Fit’s Song of the Day and Hype Machine No. 1, today Ten Fé unveil an exciting new rework by Norwegian DJs and producers Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas.
Listen to ‘Twist Your Arm (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Remix)’ HERE
The original ‘Twist Your Arm’ features slide guitars, chain-gang backing vocals, gospel piano and a Primal Scream / Screamadelica infusion by Pearson. Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, two of Norway’s biggest names on the electronic music scene have delivered a disco wig-out version.
The band’s 5-track Remix EP, ‘Hit The Light – The Remixes’, will be available on 24 February as a digital download and on limited edition Vinyl. The Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas remix will form part of the remix EP which is presented by Electronic Beats, German Telekom’s platform which has been at the forefront of electronic music for more than 15 years. The EP has an impressive line-up featuring remixes by electronic music legend UNKLE, Ewan Pearson, Tom Furse of The Horrors and German Roman Flügel. The Remix EP is the culmination of a collaboration between the band and Electronic Beats, and the deft analogue-meets-digital vibe that their relationship is about, presenting exciting and exclusive remixes of Ten Fé’s album tracks on limited edition vinyl.
