When you literally name your band ‘Enjoyable Listens’ and then go on to name your current single ‘Summer Hit’, you need to be able to back up these statements with music which will turn heads, and Enjoyable Listens achieve this without hesitation!
Last year Enjoyable Listens spent most of their time crafting and polishing their sound and identity by gigging around the London circuit, then packing their bags to support the massively impressive band British Sea Power. But Enjoyable Listens had their own massively impressive result in having the limited run of their single ‘The Terror’ last year sell out in a matter of days. Feeling no pressure with this record the band are aiming to surpass this achievement with this latest track.
‘Summer Hit’ has a soft and breezy vibe within the layers about the record, you're left with no doubt that this is a perfect track to settle your feet into the sand with a cocktail on the beach watching the sun going down.
Luke Duffett has a strong commanding tone in his voice, which allows the lyrics to form into pictures in your mind and you get to play out the meaning of the track. You can’t help but notice a touch of 80’s rock pop in the feel of this record, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing which they have made very relevant for today’s scene.
This isn’t a song which is designed to crash about and fling the sand around with your feet, this is a song to sit back and enjoy as it washes over you.
