Marked as ‘Ones to Watch’ in the British press, Ten Fé have left their busking days firmly behind them and are taking their second album on tour. Happily for us, Pollensa is one of their dates as they join the Sons de Nit line up.
Recorded with Foals producer Luke Smith, the result is an accomplished stab at the sort of intelligent indie that has brought the 1975 such success, with winning harmonies emphasising their melodic nous and subtle hooks ensnaring the listener.
