On its fourth full-length album, Radio 4 (named after a Public Image Limited song) return with an excellent mix of politically charged post-punk dance-rock inspired by Gang of Four, The Clash and a healthy dose of '80s new wave. The group comes by that distinct sound without ripping off its forebears or contemporaries, so the result sounds at once classic and modern. Singer Anthony Roman has said that he wanted to prove that "a political song could be a love song in disguise, or vice versa," and his band achieves that effect nicely on "Enemies Like This." A sleek, drum- and bass-heavy single, the song benefits immeasurably from new guitarist Dave Milone's biting contributions and the tight production of Jagz Kooner. It's a raw, emotionally charged track, with smart lyrics laid over funk riffs and deep, pulsating dub grooves -- as thoughtful as it is danceable. Even though it took them four albums to do the same, Radio 4 have finally captured that precise balance on Enemies Like This. Using disarming, straightforward rock with some unique touches, the New York four-piece crafts an impressive political statement while abstaining from didactic prose. Sharp, intelligent, and (most importantly) highly enjoyable, Enemies Like This is probably the height of the group’s creative abilities.
