“I wanna wake up brand new” Enumclaw lead-singer/guitarist Aramis Johnson sings to begin Save the Baby, their massive-sounding debut full-length, out October 14th via Luminelle Recordings. The album is a swing for greatness; a collection of life-affirming and deeply personal songs about the importance of chasing after your dreams.

Enumclaw is Aramis, guitarist Nathan Cornell, drummer Ladaniel Gipson, bassist (and Aramis’ younger brother) Eli Edwards. Working alongside producer Gabe Wax (Soccer Mommy, Crumb, Fleet Foxes), Enumclaw's Save the Baby delivers an album where on each track the band plays with dynamics while taking their songwriting to the stratosphere. The grinding guitar on single “2002” is no match for Aramis’ soaring chorus, while the music of “Jimmy Neutron”evokes the romantic, wind-swept feeling he sings about propelled by an instantly memorable riff. “Cowboy Bepop” feels like a ripcord letting loose and flapping behind a car on a joyride.
