Confirms European support tour with Ásgeir
“That sounds ready to me, when you put it in the category/company of Paolo Nutini, Ben Howard – Tenterhook sounds ready! Well done eh” Zane Lowe
“Almost unfeasibly young… yet his music has a world-weariness, a sighing nature which could only come from the weight of experience” Clash
“Expect Tenterhook to make serious inroads in 2015” Crack In The Road
“One of the most promising artists to emerge so far this year” When The Gramophone Rings
Following the release of his debut self-titled EP earlier this year, Tenterhook – 19-year-old Archie Faulks – returns with his new EP ‘Tenterhook 2’ out 24th November via Cartoon Records.
New track, ‘Go Easy’ elevates his distinctive falsetto and knack for a warm, enticing melody. Listen here.
Influences including Nick Drake, Damien Rice and Bon Iver, along with modern pop, are twisted through the four-track EP, which was produced by Anthony Leung at London’s Crypt Studios.
Tenterhook will also support Icelandic musician Ásgeir on his European tour in November and December, including a date at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. 2014 has already seen him sell out his two headline shows at London’s prestigious Servant Jazz Quarters and St. Pancras Old Church, as well as various support dates with Luke Sital Singh, Young The Giant and Grant Nicholas (Feeder). Tenterhook has also clocked up plays with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and Alice Levine, XFM’s John Kennedy, 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and on Amazing Radio.
