Molly Warburton and her band having been playing together for several years, channelling a variety of influences which range from Fleetwood Mac, Bombay Bicycle Club and Joan Armatrading to KT Tunstall.
The band is made up Molly on vocals and guitar, Nick on bass/backing vocals, Luke on lead guitar, Suds on keyboard/backing vocals and Adam on drums.
Molly’s interest in music began at the age of thirteen when she discovered The Pogues. After taking music as a subject at school and writing her first song at the age of fourteen, her tastes diversified and expanded to include artists like Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin whose soulful, powerful voices and unique styles became major influences. Now, at twenty, she and her band are enjoying playing shows and music festivals all over the UK.
This is an excellent single, it has a really soulful vibe with a great sound which has elements of singer / songwriter and indie influences amongst others. The production is excellent with really good layering and a very clean, modern sound.
The song opens with strummed chords and subtle percussion followed by electric piano and backing vocals leading into Molly’s vocals which are superb, beautiful and haunting. The song has a great momentum and really good layering with a nice change of tension in the chorus.
‘Not Your Enemy’ is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download
