The 2021 edition of SXSW is nearly upon us, with the first fully virtual online edition of the festival starting exactly three weeks from today. And with the start date of SXSW Online fast approaching, the festival has just dropped a bunch of names for the second round of acts performing at SXSW this year.

Among the notable names just announced are No Joy, Jambinai, Lambert, Iceage, and Black Country, New Road, but today we turn the spotlight on Oxford’s Enjoyable Listens, because, really, isn’t an enjoyable listen essentially what we’re all looking for in a new band? Yes, yes it is.

Check out the video for Enjoyable Listens’ “The Key Of Innocence” below.

SXSW Song Of The Day: Drinking Boys and Girls Choir – Gonna Tell You

Posted on by Paul in Song of the Day, South By Southwest | Leave a comment

Earlier this week, SXSW announced the first batch of bands for this year’s fully online edition of the festival. It will be quite different this year and probably a little bit weird not being there in person, but after the cancellation of last year’s SXSW, it’s nice to see that the festival is happening in some form for 2021 and there will surely still be some cool stuff to see there regardless.

Among the bands we’re looking forward to is Daegu-based band Drinking Boys and Girls Choir, who first caught our attention during SXSW 2019. Sure, the band’s name and song titles such as “National Police Shit” and “Keep Drinking!!!” were what initially made us pay attention, but the music itself was what kept our attention – short and sweet blasts of melodic skatepunk-inspired tunes that are almost over before you’ve even had a chance to take it in. But that’s the best part – you can just listen to the songs all over again.

The band’s latest, “Gonna Tell You,” was written for a Korean short film, which is described thusly in the film synopsis:”Ji-won Sung receives a love confession in public from Ji-won Han, of the same school and the same name. What answer will Seong Ji-won give?” Check it out below.

“Gonna Tell You” is out now via Damnably Records, who also have several other bands slated for this year’s SXSW, including Grrl Gand, Hazy Sour Cherry, and Say Sue Me.
