'Norway Song'

20/01/21

Our first release of 2021 ‘Norway Song’ is for all those who have made efforts for our natural world.

 

Building from a personal tale of a beloved but damaged natural home in Norway to a unified and full throttle Tenmours protest.

 

The song soon launches with all its might wielding a string section by our dear friend and composer Michael Cunningham.

 

We made sure to deliver all the most powerful harmonies we could conjure to represent those who feel as passionately as we do. 

The song is framed as a conversation between Alex and Elise, asking her if she is ok and for advice.

THE HIGHWAYMAN

07/11/20

Our first Original Soundtrack

 

Our November release is a collaboration with Yorkshire actor John Anderson on the stunning Edwardian poem - 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes (1906). 

Johns magnificent speaking voice coupled with our creation of cross-genre themes and dark romantic atmosphere really captures the poem and brings it to life.

ELISE

13/09/20

'Elise can you hear me? There's something I wish to discuss'

Elise is one of our most emotional tracks, and a crowd favourite!

Written in Summer 2017 following the passing of Alex's grandmother; Elise is a song about the eternal magic of loving someone who has passed away, theconnection with those who have gone and how their memories and influence still stays with us. 

 

The song is framed as a conversation between Alex and Elise, asking her if she is ok and for advice.

Lady of Gold - 07/04/20

The second single from MAZE, Lady of Gold 

Sitting half way through the EP is “Lady of Gold.” A softer song to the rest of the tracks until we reach the half way point, leading us back to their Folk Fusion roots. The first half of the song is somewhat heavenly, making us feel like we’re soaring through the sky. There hasn’t been a bad song on this EP so far and I don’t think there will be one either. The band are able to put all their personal experiences and beliefs into their own compositions, if that’s not talent, god knows what it is. - Chloe Mogg 

The stand out track, Lady of Gold, is a powerful and mysterious ballad which hints at influences from Nick Drake.

MAZE - 17/07/19

We all sometimes get lost in our own heads.

Don't forget about those around you

The lead single from the MAZE EP is the title track MAZE. A song which much like its title is a winding and complex piece that explores many different concepts such as loss, loneliness and friendship. 

This song is dedicated to friend and fellow musician Jonny Walker who sadly passed away in March 2018.

“MAZE” is a veritable tour-de-force! The Tenmours have delivered once again with another deluxe listening experience." - Shelagh McDonald
