Video of the Moment #2359: Ten Tonnes

By on Thursday, 11th May 2017 at 6:00 pm

Hertford’s Ethan Barnett, aka Ten Tonnes, was one of my favourite surprising finds at SXSW 2017. He’ll be releasing an EP on the 9th of June called ‘Born to Lose’, which he previewed out in Austin. A few weeks ago, I showed you the delightfully non sequitur video for ‘Silver Heat’, which just so happened to be released when were out at SXSW. (Watch the video back here.) Now he’s got a follow-up video for title track ‘Born to Lose’, filmed in a pet shop. What exactly do fish tanks, lizards and a python have to do with the song? Probably nothing, but it’s an excellent talking point to an otherwise pleasantly bluesy tune, I suppose. Watch the video for ‘Born to Lose’ below’. A 12″ vinyl of the EP is available for preorder now from his official Web site. To enjoy the rest of TGTF’s archive on Ten Tonnes, including my coverage on his shows and an interview in Austin in March, go here.
