Norwegian duo Aiming for Enrike have release a new single. The single is for the song Front Runner and was originally premiered on Fecking Bahamas.
Commenting on the song, Fecking Bahamas wrote: “Front Runner is a track that can be enjoyed in its own right, or carefully pulled apart to parse its craft and precision. Whichever way you want to tread, you’re going to have a blast…”

The forthcoming album, Las Napalmas, is a “to be or not to be” project, both for the listeners and the band. If you throw yourself into its musical whirlwind, which Tobias and Simen from Aiming For Enrike do every time, we’re pretty sure that you soon will catch on as well. Inside it’s atmospheric, it’s staccato, it’s fierce and it’s fascinating. But most of all it’s a lot of fun.
The common denominator for their music has always been energy and explosiveness, and there’s no doubt that you will be served that on Las Napalmas. Songs like Nibloninan Car, Moustache and Lactic Acid Trip hit you like heavy blows in your midriff. In addition, you get slow and more sonic songs like Social Window, Front Runner and Hi Ball.
It may not sound like it, since the songs throw you around with infernal power and firm intensity, but Aiming For Enrike is actually only two musicians: One guitar and one drum kit. Even though it may be difficult to believe it – the album was 100% recorded live in the studio, with only those two musicians in one room.
Together, Aiming For Enrike have created their own universe where everything is centred around what happens between the two of them in a rehearsal space, in a studio and on a stage. What you see is what you hear, and what you hear is pure joy. For the listeners and for the band.
