Young Knives – Society for Cutting Up Men

Release Date: Out Now

I find Young Knives to be a reassuringly dark presence in my life like that ‘massage parlour’ on the high street or the guy always nursing half a pint of mild in the back corner of your local. I wouldn’t necessarily approach any of these things but if they disappeared suddenly it would be disconcerting, and questions would have to be answered. The duo’s new single, ‘Society for Cutting Up Men’, is suitably left of left-field mixing Gregorian chants, fuzzed up bass and the kind of guitar sound that seemingly came from a possessed Stylophone. The vocals continue that English post-punk vibe that Young Knives have always had and if the accompanying video doesn’t make you want to burn down a shopping mall then you have a greater resolve than I do….
