Though slated to be Enemies’ final album, ‘Valuables’ is a defiantly upbeat record, drenched in weaving arpeggios and hazy atmospherics. It’s always a significant risk when a previously instrumental band introduce vocals but – freed from the shackles of fan and label expectations – the Irish four-piece seamlessly fuse the lush, ethereal pop of ‘Glow’ and pulsing synths of ‘Don’t Go’ with their more traditional post-rock fare. Though riff addicts may find this slightly wanting, for the patient listener, Enemies have left a fitting swansong. We’re certainly going to miss them.
Though Enemies have chosen the valuable things in life instead of forcing themselves to appease us, they've found a sort of compromise in releasing an album that will keep us sated for ages, while they can go about taking the steps necessary to ensure their own personal harmonies. While I'm plenty disappointed that there won't be another Enemies album on the horizon anytime soon, I feel that there's something valuable in passing through the moments and movements before "Itsallwaves" kicks off again.
