Sweater Beats is a blog favourite here at Purple Melon HQ, a.k.a. whatever coffee joint I’m in that day. The Los Angeles-based, Philippines-born artist has a seriously impressive resumé and a ton of high grade co-signs. He excelled as future bass was on the rise, with blogs going wild for his swirling, glitchy, guitar-laden electronica. His most recent single, ‘Enemy’ is yet another example of the catchy electronic pop that we’ve come to expect from Sweater Beats. Featuring the exquisite vocals of Sorana, it is full of sizzling synths, glassy guitars and pepper with driving percussion. It has undergone the visual treatment, courtesy of director David Dutton.

Sorana shares, “The ENEMY is a song about some of us that love to cheat and lie without thinking of the hearts they’re breaking . For them it’s all about the game. ‘I’ve got a lover who’s got a lover ‘ is something that happened to all of us at some point, so when it happened to me I decided to write about it. Writing about stuff that happens to me always makes me feel better. I loved writing this song with Digital Farm Animals and Jenson Vaughan and I am very, very excited for the collaboration with Sweater Beats. I love what he did with the track and I hope that you’ll love this song as much as we do!”
