Enola Fall is led by singer and guitarist Joe Nuttall, who hails from Tasmania, an island off the south coast of Australia. The band has currently released two full length albums and three EPs, recording and touring all over Australia, Europe and the U.S. and sharing stages with The Violent Femmes, The Jezabels and Amanda Palmer. Their latest release, Heliotropic, was recorded in Sydney with producer Lachlan Mitchell, who has worked with The Vines and The Jezabels.
On their new album, the band tries to find happiness, especially amidst the bad times. As Nuttall says, “We’re all just trying to chase those little bits of sunshine.” The video for “Unlovable” features Nuttall and his backing bassist performing a live recording of the track, the camera trained on the two musicians perched against a simple white wall. Though the video is as lo-fi as it gets, the performance is complex and enchanting, with a melody that washes over you. Fitting for an island boy, Nuttall delivers calm, silky vocals, reminiscent of the sea. Together, the two men create an ideal balance of vocals and instrumentation, with a low-key charm that harkens back late ’90s indie rock, but never sounds dated.
