“There’s an argument to be made that (aside from The Tragically Hip) Montreal’s Your Favorite Enemies are the most popular homegrown rock band in Canada right now.” – FYI Music News
An interview that Alex did for FYI Music News has just been published! Learn more about the spark that led to “Tokyo Sessions” and the different changes that the songs underwent. Alex also shares his views on the music business, touring, and the biggest change that happened to the band members personally over the last year!
We are proud to let you know that our latest album “Tokyo Sessions” has reached number 6 on last week’s top album charts! This makes it the band’s second straight album, after “Between Illness and Migration”, to get a top 10 upon release, standing alongside the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Tragically Hip, Radiohead and Mumford and Sons, to only name a few! Again, we want to thank you deeply not only for making such a special album yours, but for emancipating its personal nature into a real collective communion. That’s always what we are the most proud of.

New songs added to our special Spotify playlist! Discover a few of the songs that have inspired Sef while he was in studio composing “Tokyo Sessions”!
PJ Harvey – Down by the Water
I remember that I was really surprised and impressed when I heard this song from PJ Harvey for the first time! It’s different from what she has done before. There are electronic elements and an orchestral ensemble in the song. It’s also the first time she collaborated with the producer named Flood (U2, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails)! Even if she explored unknown territories, she remained faithful to herself, which is, for me, really important!!! The combination between who she is as an artist and her new artistic approach is perfectly represented in the song!
Also in the playlist:
David Bowie – Lazarus
Grinderman – Honey Bee (Let’s Fly to Mars)
Fugazi – Epic Problem
Follow the playlist, as Alex will be the next one to share a few of the songs that have inspired him!
