TEN FÉ – Turn (Ewan Pearson Remix)
Ten Fé’s ‘Turn’ was a smash online when it dropped last month, hitting no 3 Hype Machine. Now they share an exclusive Ewan Pearson Remix, a chugging house take on the original.
In a year since setting out, Ben Moorhouse, Leo Duncan and band have gained real momentum and marked themselves out as one of the UK’s most promising prospects. Previous singles ‘In The Air’ and ‘Elodie’ both reached No. 2 in Hype Machine’s most popular chart and accumulated 4 million Spotify streams, whilst debut single ‘Make Me Better’ was remixed by electronic music legend UNKLE. The band’s hybrid sound of Americana, driving electronics and blissed-out vocal harmonies is finding supporters and fans all over.
With latest single Turn, the London-based band have stripped back and shown us their soulful, woozy side. It’s a track that’s more restrained than earlier singles, with an allure owing to its dusty aesthetic and captivatingly detached vocal. Leo is this time back on lead for a beautifully rendered road-trip record.
Ewan Pearson, who has produced the band’s debut LP, has remixed the likes of Gwenno, Jagwar Ma and Royksopp before and this time shares his incredible remix of Turn. It is a chugging house rework in his signature style, which makes an ecstatic focus of the track’s howling chant.
It follows the UNKLE rework, and more mixes to come from Roman Flügel, Tom Furse and many more, as part of an exciting project with Telekom Electronic Beats.
Turn is the latest glimpse from their forthcoming debut album, produced by Ewan Pearson (M83, Jagwar Ma, The Rapture) over a year’s exile in Berlin, and is set for release at the start of next year on SOME KINDA LOVE / [PIAS].
