Enola Gay are a Belfast based Irish noise rock/post-punk 4-piece formed in late 2019. With socially aware vocals and a bed of reverb-soaked buzz-saw guitar layered on top of a driving rhythm that
draws as much inspiration from left-field electronica as it does from post-punk heroes of the late 70s / early 80s. Enola Gay have already crafted a unique sound that has drawn widespread acclaim from key industry figures and music fans around the globe, culminating with them being chosen to perform at IMW, ESNS, and SXSW.
Quickly following their second single ‘Sofa Surfing’ that lead BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq to tout them as one of the next big acts, in addition to performances at the well-established and highly regarded showcases, Ireland Music Week, Eurosonic and SXSW, Belfast mob Enola Gay make their highly anticipated return with the noisier and heavier track ‘Through Men’s Eyes’. Recorded in January 2020 with Chris
Ryan (Just Mustard/NewDad/ Robocobra Quartet), Enola spill their disgust with the Ulster Rugby rape trial, held in their hometown of Belfast; how it was handled, their disdain for lad culture and how the justice system is rigged against women.
