INDIE kids Ten Floors are back with a batch of new tunes and high hopes they can conquer the charts.
The teenagers, who met at Rastrick High School, formed in 2003 and toured the north of England in 2007 to support the release of their debut single.
Now after a lengthy hiatus locked away in a Welsh studio the Huddersfield boys are ready for their big comeback.
The relaunch comes after they were taken under the wing of a new management team.
The four piece have been working with experienced musicians and producers including Idlewild guitarist Rod Jones and Dave Eringa, who produced records for the Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild and Ocean Colour Scene.
Five tracks have been recorded and two more are currently being demoed.
Lead guitarist, Ste Brown, said they were back in town and gagging for people to hear their new sound.
The 19-year-old said “We’re really pleased with what we have come up with, it’s a bit more edgy to what we did before.
“We’ve tried to come out of our comfort zone.
“We’ve been experimenting, doing things in different ways to try and get a new sound and make it more mature.
“We went into the studio quite open minded and willing to try different things just to see what we came out with.
“A lot of the things we’ve tried did seem to work.
“Instead of doing a usual verse, chorus thing we’ve tried to change the arrangement and make it less predictable.”
The band are now focused on playing some live venues and a come back gig is planned for Huddersfield’s Bar 1:22 on June 2.
“We’re looking forward to it as it’s been such a long time since we’ve played live as we’ve been so busy in the studio,” said Ste.
“We’re hoping to play live shows throughout the summer.”
The first single, Row’s End, is released online today.
