Sensuous Enemy is a female fronted darkwave electronic band that blends driving drum sequences, hard EBM synth lines, and smoothly powerful vocals. Their music combines orchestral strings, piano, and vocal harmonies, while also adding live guitar, bass, and drums in order to create a sublime audio and visual experience.

SE is comprised of JAI [vocalist/lyricist, pianist], John Freriks [programmer/guitarist], Bob Hensley [keyboards], and Katja Lunde [live synths].
