New (sort of) Enter Shikari single

2019-08-12 by hobblepot | 26 Comments
British electronicore band Enter Shikari have released a studio version of their song "Stop the Clocks", which has been a live favourite since it was debuted in 2018.

The song is a The Spark b-side, and is not from an upcoming album, which frontman Rou Reynolds recently tweeted has only just gotten to the writing stage.

You can hear the studio version of the song here:

I stopped listening to them after The Mindsweeper. I wasn’t too big on the album and found the music was getting too pretentious and ham fisted. I have no issues with bands having political messages in their music, but I just find Shikari's delivery of it comes across as overly preachy. I never listened to The Spark, but I’d gone off them in general by the time it came out anyway.

It’s difficult to sing about politics and bring comedic elements into the mix. Hopefully one day they will get it right again

Honestly, if you want a band who communicate their messages in a non ham fisted way and have the songwriting to back it up, just listen to Petrol Girls (who are better than Shikari imo).

Also, the ambition of The Mindsweeper seems to be completely gone for some reason. Meh

Anyone who disregarded the spark because it wasn’t mindsweep 2 is really doing themselves a disservice.

They went the full boy band route and it works flawlessly if you accept the direction. The Sights and Live Outside are pop perfection and they’re not even the best songs on the album... which brings me to:

Idk how anyone can listen to Shinrin Yoku into Undercover Agents and say this band has lost it or doesn’t have anything left to offer.

It's not like they did a Kid A and completely revamped everything. To me, it just sounds like a watered down version of their more poppy songs without any additional artistic merit. I did listen to it and the singles especially and i'm really not liking it, but if you do then our opinions about it should be no bother to you

Yeah they stretch it a bit. It's a b-side tho. Not sad it stayed out of the spark.

Digging: Bambara - Stray
