Enjoyable Listens – in session for John Kennedy – Radio X – July 30, 2022 – Radio X, London –
Taking a break from the Vintage and heading into some relatively new territory with a session by Enjoyable Listens, recorded live in session at Radio X for John Kennedy’s program on July 30th of this year.
Enjoyable Listens are the duo of Luke Duffett and J Savage. Duffet, formerly of Swoons has put together this duo with a decidedly breezy and catchy aura, slightly reminiscent of Bryan Ferry, accompanying an 80s vibe and have been in nearly constant touring mode since the world broke out of it’s Pandemic isolation.
A string of singles and a debut album along with a string more dates, Enjoyable Listens isn’t wasting any time getting back on track.
Here’s a small blurb about the duo via Enjoyable Listens very own website regarding their debut s/t album:
This is Enjoyable Listens’ definitive moment. The infamous duo of Luke Duffett and J Savage built up a fearsome live reputation across London over the last year. Alas, each show was an ephemeral vapour, burning incandescently but leaving nothing tangible behind. After a number of sell out shows, the duo split due to the overbearing ego that Duffett had been unconsciously nursing. Now, after months of reflection and dissatisfaction with his current state, Duffett crafted the perfect track. He is the artisan baker that life coached the caterpillar of his own soul in to embracing the chrysalis and the deep sleep that follows, trusting that eventually, he will reawaken as the terrifying butterfly he has always known he could be. ‘Summer Hit’ was written during a brief second of momentary bliss that had hatched from an epoch of sadness. This is Enjoyable Listens final attempt at getting the weighty aircraft of it’s legacy to soar above the deceptively opaque clouds of mercurial hypocrisy.
Tonight it’s a small session, due mostly to Luke having to catch a train. But the two numbers give you an idea of what’s in store when you catch them live.
Enjoy the session.
