The US alt-rock band The Knitts released the EP Simple Folk on the 13th.
Pulsing into the room Erotic Aquatic, the three-quarter mark on the four track EP, immediately wraps a smile around the face.
Beneath the carefree abandon, that invites the listener to join in, The Knitts hold a tight reign to the combinations of blustering percussion, throbbing bass, excitable guitar and flying vocal to deliver a track that while retaining the conceptual Joie de vivre, threads a balance that playfully jostles the audience into activity, while simultaneously allowing the material to stand on its own merit.
A well established group of players, their experience shines as brightly as does their the sense of joy in creating music for people to appreciate for its intrinsic value – an EP well worth adding to the ‘party mood’ playlist.
Simple Folk – EP – The Knitts is available on iTunes.*
