#BESTBANDOFTHEDAY is “BITTER ENEMIES”

BENEMIES

Hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne, “BITTER ENEMIES” is made up of primary band members Richie Hutchinson and Max Kreetcha

With the occasional help from miscreant friends such as Keith Mills,Peter Snowdon
Jae Brooks, this newly formed collective will unashamedly deliver a rock punch to your jaw reminiscent of something from the 90s alternative scene…and who knows, you might even like it!

Following up the band’s 2016 debut EP “NEWBORN”, Broadcast is a new collection of three songs in celebration of the big and small screen, and the often forgotten female characters within! Stream it now on Spotify and other services or buy it on iTunes!

MADDIE

Music video  to MADDIE by Bitter Enemies,  was inspired by Twin Peaks.“Maddie” is the first track released from the EP “Broadcast”.

Says the band

“All three tracks from the Broadcast EP take inspiration from some of our favourite female characters from TV or film.”

“Maddie…the first song from our new Broadcast EP…and the first song I wrote in response to a brief. I got a text from Max saying he wanted to write a song about Twin Peaks and asked me to listen to  the Angelo Badalamenti score from the show and write some music. I knew it needed to be dark and what you hear on the EP is pretty much what I wrote, with little having been changed. If you listen carefully in the first verse there’s a quiet Leslie effect guitar line, a knowing nod to the TP theme tune, which was much more prominent in the demo but @theaquarium made the right call in dropping it down in the mix. Hearing Max’s lyrics/vocals on the demo for the first time blew me away! The rest of the band really added some finesse as well. There’s a few happy accidents in this one (on my part), but that just makes me love this song more…

Adrian Fisher:“Brooding intro which immediately strikes as being very cinematic. I love the way the song kicks into gear with big guitars and drums and a Cornell-like vocal. The great thing about this track is that writers Richie Hutchinson and Max Kreetcha have put a lot of thought and care into the arrangement and production of the song, to the point where you can’t say “oh, that sounds like ……” because it doesn’t sound like anyone obvious.

VIPERS

Adrian Fisher:”Another cinematic intro, great use of synth sounds and tribal-sounding drums.This is another song that strays from the norm with the same care and attention to detail that Maddie uses.The verses are quite stark and sparse before the energy surges into the choruses with big guitars, before dropping out again into the low key verse again. I love this use of light and shade dynamics which I think is sadly lacking in today’s music of all forms.My only thought from my producer’s head is the last chorus vocals should have been mixed higher to hear the lyrics better.

WON’T BE PRETTY FOR LONG

Adrian Fisher:Eerie vocal and drum intro, using a great melody line.Again, serious thought has gone into constructing the arrangement and melodies of this song.Great vocal production using ghostly reverb on the voice. Great change of feel and pace during the “live..die” section of the song before pounding into a blistering guitar solo. 

Bitter Enemies are onto something !With so much music fighting for our attention from every platform the world over,the only way an Independant band has any change of growth and survival is to differentiate from the masses of samey music out there.These guys are doing that with their “Broadcast EP”.

GO CHECK THEM OUT…..NOW !!!!!ADRIAN FISHER.
