Saturday Night Warm-Up: Red Enemy, Lykke Li and Genesis
As it’s the Bank Holiday weekend I’m sure you wont need much help getting ready for tonight, but just in case here’s JOE’s Saturday Night Warm Up Tracks.
By Peter Cooney
Red Enemy – Where We Call Home
Arguably Ireland’s finest metal band, Red Enemy have been captivating audiences with their live shows since 2008. Having supported acts such as Despised Icon, Parkway Drive and most recently Every Time I Die, the band have seen their fan base expand.
Red Enemy released their debut E.P. ‘Outsiders’ in 2009 and followed it up in 2011 with the excellent ‘What We Are Contained In, Is What We Are Worth’, from which ‘Where We Call Home’ is the lead track. You can download their latest single ‘Night Eyes’ for a bargain €1 right here.
Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers
Just in case you haven’t heard this track enough or have been living under some sort of rock, here’s Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’. The second single from her sophomore release ‘Wounded Rhymes’, the track has become a staple fixture on radio playlists internationally, and we lykke very much, sorry.
Genesis – Land of Confusion
Another classic Genesis track from the Phil Collins era. Whilst we’re more the Peter Gabriel type, we just can’t help but be drawn in with such catchy hooks. ‘Land of Confusion’ was the fourth single lifted from the 1986 album ‘Invisible Touch’ and peaked at number 4 in the US and was a top 20 hit in the UK. With a clutch of successful singles, its no wonder that ‘Invisible Touch’ was Genesis’ most commercially successful album.
A great track with a great video, it’s a great way to begin your Saturday night.
