Ten Tonnes has returned with his fiercely uplifting new single, ‘Everything You Got’.
It’s been almost two years since Ten Tonnes shared his eponymous debut album back in 2019, which The Maccabees’ Hugo White produced. The album had White’s paw prints all over it as he helped who implement his know-how of infectious indie all across the inviting debut.
In November last year, Ten Tonnes broke his silence by sharing the blues-inspired, ‘Girl Are You Lonely Like Me?’ which kickstarted his second chapter. The swaggering ‘Everything You Got’ is the latest effort, which is more pulsating and larger than ever in comparison to its predecessor.
Ten Tonnes has an eye for a chorus, which the track is weaved around, and it’s a fitting track to add to your playlist as summer is just around the corner. ‘Everything You Got’ is to feature on an upcoming EP from Ten Tonnes, which is pencilled in to arrive this summer.
On the powerful chorus, Ten Tonnes pleads: “We’re both still falling, stopping and starting, Nothing even matters ’cause tomorrow’s not coming, Shake it and roll it, twist it and lock it, Come on, baby, make me feel like no one else matters, Oh, come on, come on, come on, Give me everything you got.”
“I wrote this song last summer and wanted to write something huge inspired by my favourite indie records from the ’80s,” Ten Tonnes explained in a statement. “It felt really cathartic to write and I hope people dig it.”
There is a nostalgic feel to the track, and that ’80s influence that Ten Tonnes alludes is felt on ‘Everything You Got’. The single is unapologetically anthemic and is all about creating a feeling of euphoria. It offers up a joyous piece of escapism in a pretty bleak looking world.
