Just Listen: Ten Tonnes – Silver Heat

Ten Tonnes

Words: Leander Hobbs

Silver Heat, the brand new and official debut offering by Hertfordshire lad Ten Tonnes, aka Ethan Barnett, is a scorcher of a record. It grabs you and doesn’t let go, smashing you over the head and pulling out your teeth for good measure. Ten Tonne’s vocals are like a kids colouring book; full and vivid but never quite between the lines and despite tight production values, overseen by The Maccabees’ Hugo White, the record hasn’t lost any of the rawness of a live performance. Ten Tonnes sounds and looks like a proper rock star, a piece of grit in the eye for the mass-produced pop-rock boy band. Silver Heat is from Ten Tonnes’ new EP Born to Lose, due out on 9th June on Warner Bros. Records. Verdict: flipping marvelous!
