Buzzing out of the London, England rock scene, Electric Enemy have shared their new single “Sweet Tooth” out today via Circular Wave. The single immediately draws in the listener with a blistering guitar line and singer Jim Lawson’s distinctive voice before heading into a dreamy, melodic break and then picking right back up again. Centered around love, and lust, at first sight, the lyrics dive into the rush of being completely captivated by another person. “Sweet Tooth” was recorded at Fish Factory Studios with the band’s long-time collaborator, friend and producer Sam Miller (Alberta Cross, Razorlight), working together to create a sound that is vintage and modern at the same time. The video for the track takes on this same feel, winding through a whirlwind of color, polaroids, and performance shots that match the energy of the song.
On creating “Sweet Tooth”, Lawson expands:
“I think we initially launched into it with the intention of writing something fun, dirty, and moshable, however, as is ALWAYS the case in Electric Enemy, a message found its way in. Love comes in all shapes and sizes, sometimes it’s Hallmark and sometimes it’s a badass in a leather jacket.“
Sitting somewhere between the classic rock of the Foo Fighters and newer acts like Des Rocs and Royal Blood, Electric Enemy are setting out to make rock music with a mission that truly feels “electric”. Combining introspective lyrics with compelling melodies and dynamic musicianship, the band has cracked a formula that has made them a need to know act in the UK and beyond. Singles “Voices” (2021) and “Heartache Melody” (2022) have already given the band a taste of streaming success and BBC Radio 1 host Jack Saunders noted “There’s something in the water here.” “Sweet Tooth” marks the fourth single from a series of releases that will combine to form an EP set for release this Spring and the band is already hard at work on their first full-length.
Electric Enemy is James “Jim“ Lawton (vocals and guitar), Orlando Formaro (lead guitar), and Thomas “Tom“ Romer-Smith (drums).
