Brighton indie pop collective Tenderhooks return to Aldora Britain Records with their reflective new single, 'The Hour Glass'.

'The Hour Glass' is a deathly ballad, watching time close in and tick down. It shows a more reserved side to Markus Leinweber's songwriting, more mature and emotionally-driven. A slow shuffler that could sit perfectly besides the anthemic pop choruses that Tenderhooks are known for. Think of a cross between Paul Weller's 'Broken Stones', Richard Hawley's atmospheric musings, and a Billy Joel ballad. You may end up somewhere close!

For fans of Paul Weller, Billy Joel, Elton John, Richard Hawley, and Squeeze.


released July 6, 2022

Written by Markus Leinweber.
