Melbourne-based singer, songwriter, producer and all-round multi-talented artist, ENOLA has shared their new single, Strange Comfort via Our Golden Friend, the single’s release comes ahead of their performance at BIGSOUND festival in Australia next month. Accompanying the release, ENOLA has also shared the track’s accompanying music video, directed by Triana Hernandez.
Strange Comfort finds itself influenced by the no-wave sounds of the likes of Joy Division and Suicide’s Alan Vega, whilst combining that with the post-punk tones of IDLES and Fontaines D.C. – with a twang of electronica thrown in for good measure. Centred around the line ‘there’s a strange comfort in us all going through the same’, Strange Comfort conjures up an urgency of time running out.
Speaking of the single, ENOLA states:
There is a comfort in knowing that suffering can be a universal experience. We are alone, yet together in our aloneness.
The single arrives hand-in-hand with its partnering music video, which captures the knife-edge feeling that ENOLA interprets within the song – featuring forward movement and chaos binding together with surrealism.
ENOLA hit the Melbourne music scene with their debut self-titled EP back in 2019, receiving praise from the likes of triple j, RTR and FBi Radio amongst others. Live, ENOLA has been to described to be an enigmatic, captivating performer who holds their audiences close.
