Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Away From Here

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.


Away From Here – The Enemy

Today we are going to look at a single that when it was released, it was played a lot on the radio and in Indie clubs as it was a catchy track that sort of resembles the sound of the genre at the time. The Enemy were a band from Coventry that were formed in 2006 and have recently revealed that they are reuniting for a gig in October of this year.

Away From Here was released on the 16th April 2007, it was written by the band and was produced by Barny. The track was taken from the debut album We’ll Live And Die In These Towns that was also released in the same year. The Enemy was under the record label of Warner Brothers when this single was released as well.

The song did well in the charts, considering it was the first single from the band it did incredibly well. Away From Here went into the UK Charts at number 8 and the Scottish Charts at number 5. In the United Kingdom it gained Silver Certification and had over 200,000 sales.

This was a song that I enjoyed but it was also a song that I got bored of as it was overplayed a lot. I can understand why it was used a lot because it had a really catchy chorus and it was one of those songs that when it was played people would sing along to.
