British dance rock group Enter Shikari is back with their third studio album titled “A Flash Flood of Colour”, which is scheduled to be released on January 9, 2012 via Ambush Reality. A Flash Flood of Colour contains eleven tracks and the first promotional single titled Sssnakepit was released in September as digital download. The single peaked at number 01 on the UK Rock Chart.
It looks like most people accidentally encounter this band, as did I. The key to their success is melody. Their music is full of stunning melodies covered in rock/electronica sounds. I think it's a quite distinctive sound. The keyboards offer a nice melodic feeling while the "rock" side offers crushing guitars. I like their heavy guitars and drums that move nicely into melodic and catchy choruses. I personally enjoy most of their songs, and this band isn’t for every one but they're a favorite of mine.
