The Truth: Dapper Oxfordshire-based doomloaded troubadour ENJOYABLE LISTENS releases a brrrrand new single on January 31st. It's called 'Tear Up The Picture Of My Kids' and it means what it says on the metaphorical digital single cover. Roaring out of the New Year blocks with rapturously-received live blowouts at the Rockaway Beach and Pandamonium Festivals, this single points the way towards the second Enjoyable Listens album, due on April 5th with a launch party at Paper Dress Vintage in Hackney Village to follow on April 11th. Did we mention the tour with The Bluetones? No, no we didn't. But we will.

Because Enjoyable Listens is a man, a machine, a manly enigma wrapped up in a ball of mysterious dark wool. Luke Duffett - for 'tis he - has built an indierocksolid foundation using only melody, mayhem and an admirable ability to croon pop smashes whilst teetering upon a pair of bar stools delivering deathless anecdotes. Sometimes bassist Dom from Fake Turins is on hand to trigger the laptop. Sometimes bassist Dom from Fake Turins is barely there at all.

"This macabre pop ballad is Enjoyable Listen's James Cameron's inspiration for 'Avatar' if Cameron's inspiration for 'Avatar' was David Lynch's 'Blue Velvet'," explains the manly enigma. "'Tear Up The Picture Of My Kids' is an exploration into the deep depths of depravity of the UK's urban wildlife, in a quest for vengeance, we find ourselves stained with the same dye."

'Tear Up The Picture Of My Kids' finds our stool-balancing dreamer very much living the lyrical dream after the deadpan delights of 'Dead Frozen' and 'Summer Hit' last year. His live happenings meanwhile have seen him support the vividly eclectic likes of A Flock Of Seagulls, Big Special, China Bears, Desperate Journalist and Electric Six - and that's just A-to-E in the indie alphabet. Did we mention that Luke was also the bingo caller at Rockaway Beach? No, no we didn't.
