Melbourne-based singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist ENOLA (they/them) shares new single ‘Strange Comfort’, out today via Our Golden Friend. This comes ahead of their performance at BIGSOUND in Australia next month.
Taking cues from the no-wave sounds of Joy Division and Suicide’s Alan Vega, the post-punk of IDLES and Fontaines D.C. underpinned by a background in electronic music production, ENOLA infuses hard hitting tracks with a stinging vulnerability, applying the salve to the self-inflicted wound.
‘Strange Comfort’ is bursting with punk vitality, driven by fuzzy guitars and brusque vocals, motioning forward along a knife’s edge. Centered around the resounding line, “there’s a strange comfort in us all going through the same,” it evokes an urgency of time running out.
ENOLA says of the track, “There is a comfort in knowing that suffering can be a universal experience. We are alone, yet together in our aloneness.”
