Spending the last year tearing up stages with their rambunctious live sets across Europe in support of their 2017 EP Maybe It’s Easy, Bloody Knees have toured alongside the likes of Wolf Alice, The Magic Gang and Black Foxxes. When the band’s equipment was stolen, a campaign to help replace $12000 worth of equipment garnered huge support from both fans and contemporaries. Cementing their reputation as one of the most liked bands on the scene.
Praised for their “soaring garage-rock hooks” (NME) and “ferocious, no-holds-barred style” (DIY) the band release their new single Spinning on Distiller Records today following its debut on the BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show with Daniel P Carter. The single comes ahead of the band’s biggest London headline show to date, at The Underworld, Camden on October 18th.
Recorded with Dan White (Tribes, Free Money) at Buff Studios, Spinning sees Bloody Knees veer left of their high energy garage rock sound and slow down the pace, embracing a more intense, more sonically ambitious sound. “When I’m high as I can be, I’m high as I’ve ever been” growls frontman Bradley Griffiths over a slow-burning riff, reflecting Bloody Knees’ fully realised identity as a band at the forefront of a new wave of London rockers.
Speaking about the track, Bradley says: “We always try to write songs with the live setting and the audience in mind and I think ‘Spinning’ carries a killer, intense energy that will be SO good at our shows. It’s just a pure joy to sing along to so learn the words and come to a show! Let’s get involved.”
