22-year-old Ten Tonnes – real name Ethan Barnett – is the younger brother of George Ezra, but with his debut record he showed he is not in his brother’s shadow. Though they both have very cheerful poppy guitar filled songs, and Ten Tonnes steers away from his elder brother’s influence through the incorporation of the ’90s/’00s indie rock genre.
‘Girl Are You Lonely Like Me?’ is the first slice of new music from Ten Tonnes since the release of last year’s barnstorming self-titled debut album.

Currently working on the follow-up to his 2018 debut album ‘Love, Nostalgia’, he’s an exciting prospect for the year ahead.
Having recently released their debut album entitled Embrace, the French trio have once again shown how their unique sound makes them stand out from their contemporaries.
