Sensuous Enemy is a female fronted darkwave electronic band led by the beautiful, vibrant, and powerful frontwoman JAI, whose lyrics, melodies and soaring vocals stand out among electronica as raw and honest and set her apart from the wave of autotuners. Sensuous Enemy blends driving drum sequences and hard techno and EBM synth lines, combines powerful velvety vocals with a subtle use of orchestral strings, piano, and vocal harmony, and adds live electric rhythm guitar and drums to create a sublime visual stage presence. Sensuous enemy is comprised of; JAI [vocalist/lyricist], John Freriks [programmer/guitarist], and Chris Wenzel [drummer/programmer].
