Enola Fall is an indie band from Tasmania; Australia’s oft forgotten southernmost state.

The band has spent the last few years carving out a niche as the missing link between the oblique pop of Alt-J and the windswept melancholy of The National and Bon Iver.

Led by singer Joe Nuttall, Enola Fall was created in 2005 as an outlet for Nuttall to annoy the largest number of people possible with his falsetto. In this time, he has released 3 albums, 3 EPs, and has toured in Australia and across the world: they have toured consistently across Australia, playing at festivals such as Falls Festival, Southern Roots, Peats Ridge and the Spiegeltent at Ten Days On The Island. They have also toured as support to some of Australia’s hardest working bands, from The Jezabels, and Sparkadia, through to Amanda Palmer, The Beards, and The Violent Femmes.

Also, since the 2015 release of Heliotropic, Enola Fall have been invited to take the stage at America’s prestigious Culture Collide Festival, playing alongside acts like Ash and British India, and has also seen them play to enthusiastic crowds in Portland, San Francisco and LA in the same trip. “We were also lucky enough to play the CicLAvia Festival in the heart of LA,” says Nuttall, “as well as shows in San Francisco, Portland and Seattle.”

A two-time finalist in the International Song Writing Competition (taking 4th place in 2015), Enola Fall has found an audience in the USA — and having previously performed showcases at CMJ in 2013 and 2014, the band will be returning for further US shows this year. “We’re really grateful to have a solid fan base in the US that allows us to go back almost yearly. Radio has come on board in the US — people are hearing and thinking ‘this is cool’ and then they hear we're from Tasmania so that's the Huh factor.”

2016 will see the band write and record their fourth album, due for a mid-year release. “This new one is called Lunar, it's the companion to Heliotropic. This time, instead of focusing on depression and mental illness, I'm looking at slightly less bleak things. But it's also darker ... sleazier if you will. The sound is all clicking guitars and very precise beats. Much less hysterical then Heliotropic,” finishes Nuttall.

2016 is already shaping up to be a big year for the band in the lead up to the release of Lunar later this year.
