Ten are an experiment/ambient band from Leeds England there sound combines electronic keys, shoegaze noise and percussion with the acoustic sounds of glockenspiel and a string quartet to create a beautiful sound-scape that moves from slow, eery and melancholic to pulsating and optimistic.
Tomorrow We Sail are a Leeds/Sheffield-based five-piece, formed in early 2009. Influenced by music as divergent as folk, classical ambience, dream pop and slowcore, they switch effortlessly from hushed tones to ear-splitting walls of noise, taking the familiar template of post-rock but with a melodicism rarely found in the genre.
“Dharma Bums vocalist, Johnny Powell’s new solo venture is a harrowing, ethereal creature that swims in delicate voices, folky reflection, minimalist electronica and incidental found sounds – like an even lonelier Devendra Banhart. Interesting and affecting”.
