ENUMCLAW – ” Save The Baby “

Posted: October 14, 2022 in MUSIC

As they have said since their inception, they want to be “the best band since Oasis.” As frontman Aramis Johnson puts it, “In the lineage of rock, Oasis is the last band to go from some random dive bar to a stadium. And if we’re not selling out stadiums, we’re not doing it how I wanted to do it.”

It’s a lofty goal, but they’re already on their way to earning that moniker, drawing plenty of interest from the indie world with their “Jimbo Demo” EP. But when listening to “Save The Baby”, you begin to realize that for Johnson this band’s success isn’t just a goal – it’s a necessity.

Beneath the blown-out guitars and sun-lit hooks that colour the album, Johnson’s lyrics are restless and confessional, revealing a nervous desperation for salvation that only the band can provide. He says as much on “Park Lodge,” an early highlight that also doubles as a mission statement一 “’Cause in my life, I’ve prayed for change/About a thousand times/And in my life, I’ve wasted time/But I had to take what’s mine.”

If nothing else, Enumclaw understands the power of mythmaking.
