The shop I work at is on a little retail park, and I was lucky enough that my best friend worked in a shop on the same retail park. Sadly her shop has been shut down this weekend, but thankfully it’s a franchise so she’s just being transferred to another one not so far away. They had a closing down do and she asked me to come as her plus one! We went out afterwards too because it’s Lou’s birthday on Monday so we had a mini celebration for that too!
Enter Shikari – Torn Apart
I’ve always liked Enter Shikari (or Enter Shakira, as people occasionally mis-name them) ever since I first heard Sorry, You’re Not A Winner. When I used to live in Hertfordshire, in fact, I saw them in a Sainsbury’s supermarket, and I was really excited but totally playing it cool. Anyway I feel like recently their music has sort of started drifting away from the old stuff that I really liked – I’m not complaining because I obviously know bands progress and experiment and sometimes their sound changes. Their second album, Common Dreads is their best stuff, in my opinion, and their new song, Torn Apart, sounds like it could easily have come from that album. The video has been on the Kerrang video charts all week so I’ve been listening to it a lot and thought I’d share it! Hope you’ve all had a good week!
