Irish math-pop quartet Enemies are streaming final record Valuables in full ahead of its release this week.
The record includes last summer's stunning "Play Fire", which we called "a behemoth of rhythms and hooks." Valuables is a sinewy collection of guitar-led gold, with flickering licks and soothing vocals brewed together - it's addictively poppy and stuffed with chest-pumping percussion.
The County Wicklow-formed group put a tough time to tape on Valuables. Expanding on their third LP, the band say: "In our minds, this album exists for the four of us. If anyone else likes it that is wonderful, and we will feel humbled. But if not a single person ever listens to it, we will feel no less satisfied. We are proud of this album, and the strength it took to make it. The journey of Valuables, with all of its highs and lows, is something that we will never forget."

Tickets for their last-ever show at Dublin's Vicar Street on 18 December are on sale now.
