Canadian sextet Your Favorite Enemies is about to release their first UK single I Just Want You To Know. The band self produced their work through their own label Hopeful Tragedy Records. The band are Alex Foster (vocalist), Jeff Beaulieu (guitar), Sef (guitar), Ben Lemelin (bass), Miss Isabel (vocals and keyboard) and Charles “Moose” Allicy (drums); they have toured all around the world – Japan, Australia, Europe, Canada, Indonesia and China – and they will go on a short tour in Japan before coming to the UK in October.
The song is a complex mix of instruments, effects and poetic lyrics; the voice is not predominant and it has got an opaque and husky quality that gives almost a Gothic effect to it. The piece kicks in straight away with epic riffs; it grows even more in the refrains and towards the end.
