New Music, New Music! Enter Shikari ‘Radiate’

So I’ve posted a lot about Enter Shikari. I know. Having spent the last 4:37 minutes dancing about my room like nobodies watching (I HOPE no-one’s watching), I think this is worth including though.

One of the best things about Shikari, apart from the great beats, is that they genuinely care. There’s a deep, heartfelt message within every track. Anyone who’s seen the band live can tell how passionate they are about their music, and how passionate their fans are in return.

Oh, and did I mention that they’ll be playing Download this weekend? Excited much? I couldn’t be more..

New Music Monday: Enter Shikari ‘The Paddington Frisk’

Right. So Enter Shikari‘s new video for ‘The Paddington Frisk’ is only 1:24 long. That’s a bit weird. Oh, and it seems to be a Japanese TV show featuring a dinosaur hanging itself. Then the band do some strange kind of macarena dance.

Can’t tell if this is the band poking fun at others in the rock music world for taking themselves too seriously, or if frontman Rou Reynolds just woke up with a really crazy idea and then went for it..

I’d like to say something more in-depth about this, but having watched the video 3 times now, I still have no idea what he’s saying for most of it. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that whilst watching, The Jonas Brothers ‘Pom Poms’ came up as a suggested video. So we should all just remember that there are much, much worse things to listen to out there. Right, I’m done. Enjoy:
