Listen To Enter Shikari’s Brand-New Single, Stop The Clocks

St Albans heroes Enter Shikari have unveiled a brand-new single, Stop The Clocks.

Ahead of this month’s four-set spectacular at Reading & Leeds, Enter Shikari have dropped a brand-new single: Stop The Clocks.

“2018 was the first full year in Enter Shikari’s professional career in which we didn’t release any new music,” explains frontman Rou Reynolds of the gap between their new single and latest album The Spark.

We loved how The Spark was connecting with people and wanted to give the album its rightful breathing space. but, not wanting to be dormant, we began a new track towards the end of the year. Anyone who has seen us live recently will have heard Stop The Clocks - it’s an upbeat post-punk pop track about the joys of human connection. When someone is open and honest about their vulnerabilities, others can connect with them, and then all of us can feel stronger and more comfortable. It conveys the relief, warmth and freeing nature of the normalisation of mental health struggles, following decades of stigmatism. A flickering flame of positivity in these difficult and regressive times.”

Stop The Clocks was premiered on the Annie Mac show as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record, and is out now via So Recordings. Stream it below.
