FINAL ALBUM, ‘VALUABLES’ OUT 9TH DECEMBER 2016 VIA TOPSHELF
“Valuables is a sinewy collection of guitar-led gold, with flickering licks and soothing vocals brewed together – it’s addictively poppy and stuffed with chest-pumping percussion.” – The Line Of Best Fit
“…the ‘Valuables’ LP might well be their end-point, but the record is far from being a whimper; the early promise of the singles indicative of a mighty collection of songs that sits head-and-shoulders above most rock records you’ll hear all year.” – GoldFlakePaint
“Leaves emulates the means of creation. It sounds airy and elemental and open, sort of like it was ripped apart and stitched back together again, a swell of pinpricks and smooth lines.” – Stereogum
Enemies will release their third and final album entitled Valuables on December 9th via Topshelf Records. Valuables documents a turbulent time for the band — intensive writing, recording and touring, coupled with a lack of shared vision, led to a decision that harmony in ending is ultimately more valuable than discord in continuing. The band are now streaming ‘Valuables’ in full ahead of it’s release at the end of the week, with The Line Of Best Fit.
Formed in 2007, Enemies, an experimental/indie-rock four-piece from Kilcoole, Ireland, have spent almost a decade writing, recording and producing their own records. Having travelled the world with tours in Asia, North America and Europe, the band has continuously developed their sound, remaining incredibly distinct within Ireland’s experimental music scene. Enemies surprise their listeners with every release by constantly tweaking and perfecting their own brand of intelligent, pop-infused rock. Not content to fit neatly into any particular category or sub-genre, Enemies have continued to evolve their sound into something that goes beyond the labels of math or post-rock.
Enemies’ final show will be at Dublin’s Vicar Street on December 18th
