Through a series of remixes, blog leaks and warehouse parties, THE KNOCKS are rapidly becoming the hottest new pop production unit in NY. They have worked with a variety of artists; from Ellie Goulding to Sunday Girl, White Tie Affair to Sky Ferreira, New York’s Samuel and others.
Courtesy of producers Neon Gold (Ellie Goulding, Marina, Passion Pit), their first single Make It Better cut through the summer season with the Balearic influence of Empire of the Sun’s ‘Walking on a Dream’ paired with the whistling hooks of Peter Bjorn and John’s ‘Young Folks’.
We are lucky to host their first London show at XOYO.
“The Knocks are the Big Apple’s flyest new production twinkies; they’re the scientists of swagger. When not springing around the city’s warehouse party circuit like a couple of amorous gazelles, they’re being called in to swag-the-hell-out-of beats for everyone from Rihanna to Flo Rida” – NME
“t’s an effervescent slice of breezy dance pop that’ll have you whistling it’s tune well into autumn. Like The Avalanches meeting Delorean for margaritas on the seaside as ‘Young Folks’ drifts by sweetly in the background, it’s been the official soundtrack to our summer thus far and we hope it’ll make an equally indelible mark on your season as well.” Neon Gold
“It’s amazing. In fact if anything we underestimated its amazingness. We’ve been listening to it about twice per day recently and it gives a little bit more every time. Elsewhere it seems to be accepted fact that Katy Perry’s ‘California Gurls’ is the unofficial summer song of summer 2010, but here at Popjustice HQ ‘Make It Better’ takes the prize.” Popjustice
SPARK is eighteen years old but with a combination of characteristics in both personality and musicality that make her seem both 5 and 35 at times. Arguably unconventionally, Spark grew up listening to artists from the Spice Girls to Shaggy and has since exposed herself to everything around and in between. However, although this will have, inevitably, had an impact on Spark’s sound, it has been purely people, situations, relationships, losses and gains that have influenced her lyrically- a writer that choses her words carefully before placing them neatly somewhere between rhyme and reason. Take the music away and you’re left with a poem. Take the poetry away and you’re left with melodies and rhythms flowing from her layered vocals.
Single ‘Revolving’ is released on 15th November!
