Yes, yes; another band with a Japanese chick. What can I say; Japan is mad everywhere. I was in Spain for spring break, and you wouldn't believe how many Japanese chicks I saw there. Yeah, in Spain.
Anyway! Named after a village in Ohio, Enon comes to us from New York City, although its founder, John Schmersal, hails from Philadelphia. After the frontman of his original band, Brainiac, suffered a premature death, John decided to hide out in Kentucky for a while. After he realized he didn't want to be in Kentucky, he made his way to New York where he recruited two members, dropped those two members, then picked up Matt Shultz and Toko Yasuda, the Japanese chick.
Enon is crazy eclectic. Pulling from the likes of the Flaming Lips and '80s New Wave, Enon can swing toward dancey pop to cutesy koto to fractured rumbling rock. Listen to Natural Disasters and Window Display; you won't believe the songs are by the same band.
