#BESTBANDOFTHEDAY is “BITTER ENEMIES”

BENEMIES

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.

“SOCIALLY AWKWARD” A slice of power pop and current hit single.Bob Dee describes the inspiration behind the song.”I wrote this from being at a famous party one night in New York City. I was like a wallflower I didn’t say anything all night. I was so shy I felt out of place like I did not fit in.. Every time I tried to talk to some girl at the party, words would not come out of my mouth and yes, it is true, there was a Jenny at the party, she was the one that was looking at me it was a surreal time for me because when I get onstage I am not shy I own it!!

“LIPS THAT HEAL” GREAT SONG!!And great video to go with it! Bob says “I was in a long term relationship and I always have my female friends that I hang out with, so one night we were all out drinking and one of my long time friend’s got a little too drunk,when I came down the corridor in the bar, she grabbed me threw me up against the wall and gave me a full hot sexy mouth to mouth long kiss like in the movies, then she walked away!! wow we never talked about it ever again, we remain friends but I will never forget that kiss, so I wrote a song about it and made a video too for it!!

“MOTHER SAYS” A brooding slow rocker about a fallen Angel! Bob Dee says “this is a funny story. I live in Queens, NY, you know where the accent is real New York here, so I ran into this girl’s Mother and she kept telling me to date her daughter, she is so sweet and kind, hmmmmm so I started dating her daughter, but this girl was a wild one she was a party girl out every night.. She drove me crazy.. so when a girl’s Mom says My daughter is so sweet with a nice personality, run for the hills!!!!!

“WE ARE STARS” A pounding Rock Anthem with a great guitar riff and catchy chorus.Bob’s insight on this one “This song is an Anthem for all the people that are having a rough time in life, getting put down every day, the only place they feel good is talking to their shadows: when we play this song live I want everyone to feel hope. We all shine, we are all stars so we hide our scars

“TAKE MY HAND” Haunting ballad which Bob describes as “We had a huge storm in New York City called “Sandy” and I was stuck inside my apt with my girlfriend at the time and we were in a big fight.She was in one room and I was in the other, we had no power so we lit candles all over our apt. It was a real New York story, living in a high rise apt on the Upper West Side, the rain was hitting the windows hard and I just started playing my guitar writing this song, she laid down beside me and we made up.

Bob Dee is a huge talent and a great songwriter.His albums have hit songs on them, one after another.For more info, got to BobDee with Petro.com , Facebook , Amazon plus all usual outlets.
