Perhaps the definitive Transgressive band... we were thrilled by the band on our first visit to Oxford and immediately signed them for the ‘Junky Music Make My Heart Beat Faster' ep, and swiftly converted it to our first multi-album deal.
The band went from strength to strength with their debut album ‘Voices of Animals and Men' bringing a refreshing take to the post-punk revival, will killer pop songs such as ‘She's Attracted to', ‘Weekends and Bleakdays' and of course ‘The Decision' leading to a Mercury nomination, sold out shows and much press love...
The band broadened their horizons with the follow up ‘Superabundance', leading off with the vitriolic observational masterpiece ‘Terra Firma', ‘Up All Night' and the stunning ‘Turn Tail', blasting over people's conceptions of the band, and leaving them in a position where next, anything could happen.
The Young Knives are currently road-testing a number of new songs that will make up their third album on low-key dates now, but in the meantime Henry has posted a glorious new demo which you can download for free here:
