Saffa's Song of the Week [wk49 - 08]

The Enemy - Away From Here

This is an oldie but its a goody and sums up perfectly how I felt about work this week.
They have a sound that has to grow on you. I find it a bit like the same process of getting to know and love Kings of Leon. I have seen them live twice at UK festivals and have to say that I was surprised at how many of their songs I know without actively following the band. Here is The Enemy's website is saying about what they are up to these days:

Scheduled for release in April 2009, The Enemy are currently recording the eagerly anticipated follow-up to their all-conquering debut album 'We'll Live and Die in These Towns' at studios in Coventry and London with producer Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, Foals, The Zutons). The Enemy recently confirmed their biggest headline tour to date for March and April next year which concludes at London's Brixton Academy. All of the twenty-two shows at major venues are either sold out or will soon be.

'We'll Live and Die in These Towns' hit the top of the album charts and was soon certified Platinum, ensuring The Enemy's status as one of the UK's biggest bands in the process. They also earned a plethora of major awards including NME and Q's Best New Band and XFM's Best Debut Album. Having played at the Reading and Leeds festivals and the BBC's Electric Proms, they also headlined NME's Rock & Roll Riot tour before heading to Japan for the first time. They also made history with two phenomenal homecoming shows at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.
