Following on from the success of their last single ‘Control’, TENFIVESIXTY return with a new release for 2015, ‘Dashboard Light,’ produced by Duncan Mills (The Vaccines, Peace) and mixed by international producer Robert Harder (Brian Eno, Herbie Hancock, Whitey, Squarepusher).
Formed by Jen Bailey and Rick Hornby a few years back, the group say it was a shared love of, “lost romanticism, soundtracks, 60’s girl groups, 80’s hooks, good footwear, attention to detail, and the darker side of classic British guitar pop” that brought them together, and such reference points are certainly audible in the material they’ve released so far. Jen’s vocals draw comparisons to Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, whilst Rick’s unique guitar style resonates the work of The Cure.
Their first outing ‘Killer’s Son’ captured imaginations when it was released as a free download back in 2012. Their first full-length release – ‘Do This For Me’, through Giant Haystacks / Fierce Panda – saw them dip into wistful balladry, and came accompanied by a remix from Californian psych-rockers Crocodiles.
