TOTD#27: Ten Tonnes – Lay It On Me

For fans of: Declan McKenna, George Ezra, Circa Waves
Hear it live: Norwich Waterfront (18 March) w/ Tom Grennan – tickets.

Don’t make the mistake of pigeonholing Ten Tonnes. The 21-year-old newcomer may be the younger sibling of one Mr George Ezra, but Ethan Barnett is creating a buzz of his own with his unstoppably catchy brand of guitar-pop. About “telling someone if they need you, you’ll be there”, his latest single ‘Lay It On Me’ is an energetic driving-with-the-windows-down anthem waiting to happen. As well as a peppy chorus that rushes in from nowhere, it has a middle eight you can bet your bottom dollar on hearing in a festival field somewhere or another come warmer months.

Straight off the back of an arena tour opening for Stereophonics, you can catch Ten Tonnes on the road this month with Tom Grennan. And you should! It’s one of our March picks.
