[song] Enola Gay – Leeches

Enola Gay are back with a brand new single titled “Leeches”. It is unveiled with the announcement of their new EP Casement, which is set for release on September 1 via Modern Sky (it would also include their other recent cut “PTS.DUP”).

It is a chaotic and abrasive track demonstrating the band’s ability to create a wall of sound with distorted guitars, pounding drums, and Fionn Reilly’s manic vocals. Politically charged, the song touches on the current cost of living crisis.

Detailing their newest release, produced by Johnny Hostile (Savages), the band explained:

“As we lost loved ones who died alone during the pandemic, these inept meat martinets continued and will continue to get away with everything. When their designated spare-dick spearheads are such embarrassments that their actions are brushed off as typical occurrences; you can’t embarrass them more than they embarrass themselves. We watch governmental slapstick playouts daily and still end up the punchline.

This is for the recycled hypocrites elected every round who make it mockingly abundant that we are not their priority. We are their poverty porn. Twisting the knife in us, they spend the millions they haven’t lost yet on monument refurbishment in the midst of an energy crisis. People have suffered this cost of living crisis for years. Only now is it newsworthy with people in the upper echelon also beginning to feel it. Ironically, making the dissociation gap between real people and the likes of Parliament greater than ever”.

[song] Enola Gay – PTS.DUP

Following an incident with a member being brutalised in a sectarian attack that left him with a fractured skull, Belfast-based band Enola Gay sublimated their energy into the new single “PTS.DUP”.

The single was produced by Johnny Hostile (Savages/Jehnny Beth) and recorded with Rian Tench and Scan (Phillip Glass/Panikatax). In just two minutes, vocalist Fionn Reilly creates an eerie atmosphere with his agile delivery and humming guitars in the background turning the track into a distorted horror soundtrack.

Enola Gay’s lyrics could very well be the basis for a future manifesto, so we can’t wait to check out what their upcoming EP Casement has got in store for us (it will be out this summer through Modern Sky UK).
