barrier at a shikari gig sounds amazing, you got there so early omg the dedication
redshift is a great song and i agree with you about their lyrics, they really are amazing.
i think their sound has changed over the years but not in a bad way, they're constantly progressing.
i think i've been listening to them since 08 & take to the skies remains my favourite album i love it soso much.
few of my favourite tracks are mothership, adieu, zzzonked, arguing with thermometers, ok time for plan b, we can breathe in space
i'd love to see them at their own concert! i've seen them twice but at festivals (they were my favourite of the weekend on both occasions)
even though I think it would have been totally different if it was in a smaller venue! (i was so jealous of people in paris damn, they played in a small great venue where i saw mindless self indulgence and what a great concert that was
) I was right in front of Chris, I mean I couldn't have hoped for a better spot. Please, take me back!
Yes they have very much evolved and I think it is for the best! I remember first thinking they jumped on the dubstep bandwagon but their style evolved in something truly unique (I mean it was already unique to begin with but it only made me love their music more). And if there's one thing Enter Shikari is about, it's that there is no barrier between all the genres.
Take To The Skies
I can't choose one album. I can't choose one anything when it comes to them (hello i am shikari trash am i right)
I really like their singles. Destabilise, Quelle Surprise, Radiate, Slipshod, Tribalism etc etc. The other day I tried to do a playlist to introduce them to a friend and ended up putting 5 songs of each album because I couldn't figure out my faves
Arguing with Thermometers' video is hilarious! And Zzzonked oh god
It's going to be a while until we have new stuff (we're probably going to have new songs but I mean a full album) because they are going back on tour in a few days, but I can't wait!! (they're doing a shikari sound system in a festival in london soon but idk if I'll still be in london and i'm broke so I can't plan on going )
Here is me showing off my signed stuff and my anxious face, because why not
Winterbury wrote:Ayy, I need it was just a matter of time until the first TOP fans showed up. I started listening to them mid-late 2014 and it's really weird to see a band that was still pretty niche suddenly become immensely popular. Ngl, I have a secret "i liked them before it was cool" complex now that Stressed Out is being played literally everywhere - especially since there are SO many great Twenty One Pilots songs and yet they just keep playing the same song over and over. But if their presence on the radio gets people to take a liking in them, then I'm more then satisfied haha.
Yeah it is weird to hear a band that you listened and wasn't very known, on the radio all the time. That happened to me with Shaka Ponk, that I knew since around 2007 or something and that suddenly got popular around 2011 I think? They were played on repeat on the mainstream radios and it was SO WEIRD.
These days I'm really feeling top's first album
Musically I don't LOVE it, but all the lyrics make up for it. Even though I don't relate to the religious ones at all, I give them my own meaning and some of the songs are fantastic. Trapdoor for example. (relatable, woops that says a lot about my mental health doesn't it ahem)
Taxi Cab and Isle of Fightless Birds also
A bit intrigued by the blurryface/wearing blue onstage going on but it could be just for a deluxe album or something so I don't care that much.
