7966.82 miles, as the gull flies.
That’s the distance from Hobart, Tasmania, to Los Angeles, California – across time zones, hemispheres and a whole lot of saltwater. Via residencies in Melbourne and Sydney, tours up and down the East Cost, till finally Enola Fall arrived in the States.... at least for now.
Enola Fall are different. Genuinely different.
Somewhere in between the twisted introversion of Echo & the Bunnymen, the guts and growl of PJ Harvey, and the anthemic pop of the Manic Street Preachers. Soaring vocals, melodies snagged at the end of a bloody fishhook, metered with an intense rhythmic tattoo.
Enola Fall recorded their music in Hobart, Tasmania. From this, the 2015 album Heliotropic was created, going on to catch the attention of major publications like Stereogum, Huffington Post, Death and Taxes, and many more, and leading to shows and tours with Courtney Barnett, The Jezabels, Amanda Palmer, The Violent Femmes, and sets at the Falls Festival, CMJ, Echo Park Rising and Culture Collide.
“Whether dealing in kinetic alternative rock or arching pop anthems, Enola Fall play the most likable of miserablists. Their songs acknowledge the gloom without suffocating in it, point the way to redemption, or at least relief, and deliver a jolt of catharsis on the way.” – Buzzbands LA
"The first single (off that release) is “Vestigial Tail.” A hypnotic looping piano line is underscored by pulsing low strings and orchestral percussion. It’s achingly beautiful and the choruses are soaring, anthemic with Nuttall’s uniquely high, powerful vocal painting a visceral image of murder and obsession.” – AMFM Magazine
“You feel compelled to keep listening to their soul-searching lyrics as the beat presses forward.” – Stereogum
“The track has an immediate likeability that makes me wonder if it could pop up on a future film soundtrack” – USA Today
“The band is really good.” – Huffington Post
“Instantly pulls in the listener with its powerful arrangements and infectious vocals and lyrics” – Diffuser
“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” – Boston Globe
“This was one of the most unique shows I have witnessed” – AMN
