Live Review: Ten Tonnes - Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff 15 December 2023

In support of his brilliantly received second album 'Dancing, Alone', released earlier this summer, Ten Tonnes returned to Cardiff to put in to live action his sophisticated, swanky guitar pop. Having broken free from the major label circuit, he has found with the creative freedom to pursue his unique direction and fans tonight got to see the full cross section of his musical talents as he wasted no time in rolling out the hits.

Opening with Born To Lose, with the bar set high, the energy inside never faltered as fans sang back each and every word as he fluidly moved through his album and EP single's. And as the crowd grew in enthusiasm, so did his smile as Ethan chants steadily began to fill the room. It's clear to see why the adoration was so high with a perfect deliverance of musicianship on display as tightly knit basslines and guitar layers were brought to life in the wildest of fashions.

By the time Silver Heat's crying wails and infectious melodies unfolded the atmosphere was at a peak before he rolled out the catchy Lay It On Me and softer paced G.I.V.E. to keep fans in check with a breather.

Cutting a fine balance between 60's nostalgia and quick witted modern-day pop, Ten Tonnes is atop of the game and as the band returned for a 2-track encore, fans were sad to see their Saturday night come to an end. But it's safe to say they go their fair helping of breezy, upbeat catchy guitar pop. It's onwards and upwards for Hertford's Ten Tonnes.
