The Truth: ENJOYABLE LISTENS is a man, a machine, an enigma wrapped up in a ball of mysterious dark wool. Sometimes solo onstage, othertimes standing alongside bassist Jimbo, even backed by full band at stranger times, Luke Duffett - for 'tis he - has built an indierock solid foundation using only melody, mayhem and an admirable ability to croon pop smashes whilst teetering upon a pair of bar stools.

New single 'That's Where The Love Is' ticks all the regular Enjoyable Listens boxes and so much more: his first release since 'Dead Frozen' last year, it finds our hero drowning in Berlin circa 1984, all chilled embraces and sultry asides. It's also super anthemic and hyper intelligent, as you may well be able to deduce from Luke's words here:

"‘That’s Where The Blood Is’ is a sub-three minute exploration into the aching foundations of a civilisation, crushed under the weight of its own burgeoning legacy. Written in the bleak midwinter, whilst shivering behind a gas stove in a 1992 Talbot Express parked on a horse ranch in rural Oxfordshire, Duffett has saturated ‘That’s Where The Blood Is’ with imagery reminiscent of his desire for a life beyond aesthetic.

"The aforementioned setting, the pithy lyricism concerning societal breakdown and the pop driven production are all seemingly at odds with one another, all engaged in a form of graceful combat that’s both beautiful and terrifying in equal measure. It’s this dynamism that makes ‘That’s Where The Blood Is’ a song that can’t be turned away from."

2022 was quite the breakthrough year for ENJOYABLE LISTENS, with the release of the excellent 'The Enjoyable Listen' album and a billion live shows at Glastonbury, SXSW, The Great Escape and Focus Wales as well as a tour of the Home Counties with - yes - Home Counties. Throw in victorious headline gigs at Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes, The Shacklewell Arms and the Lexington as well as the (very) odd support for Antarctic Monkeys (hello Milton Keynes) and you have a troubadour for all occasions.

True to manic live form, ENJOYABLE LISTENS launches the single by pretending to be Phil Collins for the night when he warms up for a return to SXSW by playing two shows on February 28th, like this:

Kings Cross Lexington
