ENUMCLAW – ” Jimmy Neutron “

Posted: June 19, 2022 in MUSIC

Enumclaw from Tacoma, Washington, have announced their long-awaited debut album with a great title, “Save the Baby“, due October 14th through Luminelle Recordings. Details of the band’s Gabe Wax-produced first full-length, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2021 EP “Jimbo Demo“,

Alongside a video for new single “Jimmy Neutron.” “This song is about getting so close to love that you can almost taste it,” frontman Aramis Johnson explains in a statement. “All the highs of being in love and how ridiculously unlike yourself it can make you act. All the day dreaming you do about what things could be and how they might go. There’s always a catch, though, and in this story as soon as you reach out to grab ‘love’ and have it in your hands, you drop it.” “Jimmy Neutron” opens with some convivial band chatter before Ladaniel Gipson’s drumbeat cues Johnson and Nathan Cornell’s dialled-in guitars, with Eli Edwards’ (Johnson’s younger brother) thrumming bass completing a pretty sonic picture.

The song’s hooky central riff as Johnson’s vocal performance, his smoothest and most self-assured to date: “I want to fall in love / But I don’t think I can have it / Every time I get close to you / I start to panic,” he sings, steadfast despite being trapped in that emotional liminal space. The track confirms what we’ve believed since Enumclaw first burst onto the scene with “Fast N All” last year:
