‘Enemy Mine’ by Swan Lake

Created in 2006, Swan Lake’s members are affiliated with the other Canadian bands known as Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Destroyer and New Pornographers.
Their new album starts out with a troubadour-ish song that takes you back to renaissance era reminiscent of Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake,” from where the band takes their name. Their next song is a beautiful piano ballad that has a soothing effect on a listener’s ears, but from there on, the CD is solid Canadian rock and roll. Although the album is interesting, it does not have enough variation from its brother and sister bands. Swan Lake still needs to find a voice that sets them apart from the rest.
