Aiming For Enrike’s forthcoming album, ‘Las Napalmas,’ is a “to be or not to be” project, both for the listeners and the band. If you throw yourself into its musical whirlwind, which Tobias and Simen from Aiming For Enrike do every time, we’re pretty sure that you soon will catch on as well. Inside it’s atmospheric, it’s staccato, it’s fierce and it’s fascinating. But most of all it’s a lot of fun.
The common denominator for their music has always been energy and explosiveness, and there’s no doubt that you will be served that on ‘Las Napalmas’. Songs like Nibloninan Car, Moustache and Lactic Acid Trip hit you like heavy blows in your midriff. In addition, you get slow and more sonic songs like Social Window, Front Runner and Hi Ball.
It may not sound like it, since the songs throw you around with infernal power and firm intensity, but Aiming For Enrike is actually only two musicans: One guitar and one drumkit. Even though it may be difficult to believe it – the album was 100% recorded live in the studio, with only those two musicians in one room.
Together, Aiming For Enrike have created their own universe where everything is centered around what happens between the two of them in a rehearsal space, in a studio and on a stage. What you see is what you hear, and what you hear is pure joy. For the listeners and for the band.
The first single, Marion Jones, lands midway between the more energetic and the clubby songs on the album. The song is a kind of summary/hotchpotch of what the band stand for. Take a listen to the track via Soundcloud below.
