Lizzie and the band are all from the North East (Newcastle and Sunderland). Musical inspiration comes from Wolf Alice, Beabadoobee, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and local music hero Sam Fender.
“The Enemy follows a character similar to those I’d see growing up around me in a village just outside of Newcastle. It’s about someone who doesn’t fit in or work well in school and is pushed into jobs and a future that they don’t want and feel was written for them. It explores how this leads to rebelling and frustration which is often soothed with overconsumption.
Although it’s a very political song it ends with a personal nod to how this character (based on someone close to me) comes out of the other side and goes against what is expected. Overall I wanted this song to portray the bitter truth of life I’ve seen around me but also end with a sense of hope.”
