EP Review: Enjoy Destroy

By on Tuesday, 21st October 2008 at 8:03 pm

Enjoy Destroy have been getting a hell of a lot of press recently, having won over Offset, Guilfest and been one of the few to have played Zoo Thousand and Eight.

So, what’s so great about them?

Well, not only are they young and up for it, but they also make amazing tunes… I’m not normally a fan of stuff like Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters (no, it’s not the hair… I’m just more of a gentler kind of person), but Enjoy Destroy are similar whilst being slightly different.

Opener “Rifles” (video below) is loud, catchy, rocky and certainly a good “get up and get out of bed” tune – yes, it’s pop punk, but a bit more Biffy than Blink 182. Thankfully.

Call and response choruses are the order of the day it seems for most tunes, which will work pefectly come festival season next year and a legion of fans to get the crowd going.

The only downside to this EP? Arguably, their best song is the first one so you feel a bit let down (though not that much) after such an ace start.

Want to listen to more? Catch the video for “Rifles” below.


Enjoy Destroy’s self titled EP came out on Monday 6th October on Fire One Records.

It’s a cracking little video too.

I reckon the final track, Pyrotechnic Eyes isn’t far off Rifles. Both are pretty anthemic.

Caught them live at the Borderlin a couple of weeks ago and was really impressed.
