Riff: Enemies – “Indian Summer”

Oct 16, 2013

I run away with you/You run away with me with you with me/With you, with me, are you with you, me

from Indian Summer lyrics by Enemies

Catchy mathers, check it out – Enemies warrant attention by combining the best of Sargent Housers ASIYFA and TTNG with ambiguous, euphoric group vox over a smooth seven groove. The simple “let’s run away” anthem peaks when the message boils down to simple nonsense, demanding a loud scream-along.
