Tacoma's Enumclaw have emerged as one of the most exciting new bands out of the Pacific Northwest with their impressive '90s-steeped rock jams that put a refreshing energy into a beloved nostalgic sound. Boldly coming out the gates with the motto "the best band since Oasis," the four-piece outfit fronted by Aramis Johnson quickly garnered acclaim for their early singles from premier publications like Pitchfork and The Fader ahead of releasing their breakthrough debut full-length album Save The Baby this past October.

Enumclaw are embarking on a North American tour throughout March and early April 2022, with a tour kick-off date at the Wild Buffalo in Bellingham on March 3rd before closing out the tour in Seattle headlining Neumo's on April 8th.

Enumclaw's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a wonderful glimpse into the band's eclectic influences, with Aramis cohesively bringing together rock, soul, R&B, pop, and folk favorites in true mixtape fashion.
