‘Smile’ a catchy and upbeat summer tune is taken from The Enemies' forthcoming debut album, Sounds Big on the Radio, and captures the essence of the work carried out by the charity, according to the band.
“We are delighted to be involved with Down Syndrome Ireland,” says lead guitarist Johnny Crean. “It’s a cause close to our hearts, and they carry out fantastic work throughout Ireland. We hope to stay involved with DSI for many years to come.”
All proceeds of the single ‘Smile’, backed by the Twitter campaign #SMILE4JUNE, will be donated to Down Syndrome Ireland. The band have also been invited to perform the single live at Down Syndrome’s Ireland Garden Party on 30 June in Gardenworld, Kildquade, at the National Garden Exhibit Centre in Wicklow, in support of Down Syndrome Ireland & Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice.
Pat Clarke, CEO Down Syndrome Ireland said: “We are thrilled to be associated with The Enemies and the beautiful record ‘Smile’. We are very impressed with this young and very talented group and we are sure that their debut album will be a huge success. All money raised through the sale of SMILE is going to help with supporting services for our families all over Ireland.
‘Smile’ is available to download on iTunes, CD Baby, and various other major digital sites, with limited CD copies available for purchase in Down Syndrome Ireland's pop-up store on Grafton Street.
