Electric Enemy

RISING STARS: One To Look Out For In 2020 – Electric Enemy

Electric Enemy enter 2020 with “Save Me”

Heavy-pop four piece Electric Enemy are a London-based band making music that you can’t help but be hooked by. Driving guitar riffs are met by perfectly crafted melodies, resulting in a grown-up sound that cuts through the noise. Electric Enemy speak to a generation who have heard it all before and who demand quality and authenticity from their music; along with a sound they can revel in and songs they can relate to.

The bands’ message is born from their response to the world around them – with lyrics that tell tales of broken hearts, a broken world, and breaking boundaries evidenced throughout new track “Save Me” lyrics which include: “Weep for what you see, bring back love and empathy/Tired of building walls, keeping out aggressive souls/Climb, step by step, focus on here and now/Tomorrow is a new day and you will have to carry on”.

Jim (guitars/lead vocals), Orlando (guitars), Sara (bass), and Tom (drums) come together to create a sound which could be likened to Muse, The Killers and Queens Of The Stoneage but with artistry that means it could only be Electric Enemy. The band have been busy in the studio working on their debut album with producer Sam Miller (Paloma Faith, Razorlight) and the collection of songs take the listener on a journey through alternative rock, indie pop and with more than one nod to an electro-pop sound that is playful in all the right places.

Invited by John Giddings to open the Main Stage at the 2019 Isle Of Wight Festival the band self released their debut song “Climb” in celebration. Their live shows are powerful and clearly show a band with the energy and talent ready to take on the world – Jim’s voice has a distinctive tone with incredible range and the band are as tight as they get, with a chemistry that truly feels ‘Electric’!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
