Frontman Joe Nuttall has a knack for shifting at just the right time and in just the right way to coax drama out of his songs. An unfussy sonic palette — pared-down Arcade Fire-style guitar anthems, with an occasional hint of new wave snap — allows him to step out of the way and let the music’s turns do most of the work.
“Lions”:With a new lineup, Enola Fall have strengthened their indie electro-pop sound — think the Wombats and Two Door Cinema Club but with a little more rock. The Aussie quartet’s “Stab On!” is the addicting first single off of their upcoming album, Heliotropic. Once the song starts, you feel compelled to keep listening to their soul-searching lyrics as the beat presses forward.
