New Sultry Music Video from Ten Ton Man

Ten Ton Man Crosses "Fine Line" with Sultry New Music Video
featuring Burlesque Dancer Dirty Martini

 New York based Americana trio Ten Ton Man has released their new music video "Fine Line", the second single off the group's new three-track Chunk of Change EP that is set to release on April 8, 2014.

Set in a bawdy, back-alley theatre, the video features world-famous burlesque dancer Dirty Martini who smothers a man to death as Ten Ton Man performs their song "Fine Line" in the background.  Frontman and band creator Paul Livornese wrote the song as a metaphor for addiction. He sings in his signature deep baritone: It’s the tagline / Of this old crime / It’s my new bride / For the tenth time / She looks so fine / This century’s mine...There’s a fine line / To a grand time.

Sound of Confusion described the single "Fine Line" as "a bluesy, almost rootsy form of Americana that will sit nicely in your collection next to Tom Waits or Grinderman, it's not just the visuals that provide the atmosphere."  Regarding the video, SoC goes on to say, "Cinematic in its ambience, 'Fine Line' is part Western movie and part Tarantino in its sinister undertones...Dark, dirty, dangerous and suggestive, the perfect match has been made between the visuals and the song."

The Chunk of Change EP follows the group's critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which they released in Sept 2012. The Aquarian calls the band’s first release "timeless", saying, "One of the defining elements...is that they’re based on real stories from his life, making them all the more three-dimensional and personal to the touch." Commercial Free UK raves, "Ten Ton Man has very uniquely found the perfect recipe for Americana."Review You says, “With Livornese on vocals, Ten Ton Man introduces listeners to vocal strength and talent not present in the music industry, until their arrival.”
