Ten Kens

The origins of the band are rooted in 2003, when Ten Kens jammed and rehearsed as a three piece, utilising several different drummers for the first year, before deciding to rent a townhouse to write and record an album entirely by themselves. Once recorded, the fruit of their labours was burnt to disc and circulated, and following a spate of label interest culminating in their signing to FatCat, they decided to flesh out the line-up, began playing shows, and set about recording their debut album properly.

A record very much informed by their earlier recordings, but sounding fresh and rejuvenated, their self-titled debut was fuelled by a collective drive and ambition, and firmly placed them in the realm of their contemporaries, recalling the likes of Liars, Black Mountain, Black Heart Procession and Arcade Fire. Laid down in June 2007, the band recorded practically all day and all night for two weeks straight. The record, released in September 2008, was lapped up by critics and fans alike, and successful tours followed.
