Enter Shikari burst back with new sizzler ‘Stop The Clocks’

If you’re counting down the hours till the end of the day, well you should take a moment and *ahem* ‘Stop The Clocks’ - cos’ Enter Shikari are band with a fresh new banger

The absolute toe-tapper was debuted at the Hottest Record In The World on Radio 1 last night, and picks things right up where ‘The Spark’ left off - more twitching electro-infused pop from St Albans' favourite sons. 

Speaking about the track, frontman Rou Reynolds said:

“2018 was the first full year in Enter Shikari’s professional career in which we didn’t release any new music. We loved how The Spark was connecting with people and wanted to give the album its rightful breathing space. but, not wanting to be dormant, we began a new track towards the end of the year. Anyone who has seen us live recently will have heard Stop The Clocks - it’s an upbeat post-punk pop track about the joys of human connection. When someone is open and honest about their vulnerabilities, others can connect with them, and then all of us can feel stronger and more comfortable. It conveys the relief, warmth and freeing nature of the normalisation of mental health struggles, following decades of stigmatism. A flickering flame of positivity in these difficult and regressive times.”

After playing shows across the globe over the past year and a half, Enter Shikari will be pulling out all the stops at Reading & Leeds next weekend - playing four sets across the weekend. We’ll be running a bath for them on the Monday after all of that (don’t say we’re slacking in our post-festival care now).

Expect this one to go off live, check out ‘Stop The Clocks’ below
