The Knux Channel Animal Instinct for KTWN
The Knux let a new track go, and it goes bang!
The Knux are in beast mode with the familiar ‘hop you might remember that powered their super-impressive opus Remind Me in 3 Days. Their latest, “Animal” roars with the boom-bap of “Cappuccino” and “Put It In The Air,” giving off visually profound poetry by Krispy Kreme and Joey Lestrat. Their penchant for philosophy reigns through and through, all the way to the end with another familiar piece of audio worthy of striking a chord in the back of your Medulla oblongatta.
We learned that “Animal” is the first release since the Knux’s newfound label freedom, away from Interscope. They told us it’s from the forthcoming KTWN, “A sonic short—not quite and EP, more than a single.” Adding on about their musical journey, “The Knux have called Koreatown, in downtown Los Angeles, home for many years, and the name is an ode to their homegrown, back to basics new music. In August, The Knux are taking their sweat driven, stage diving, jump kicking show on the road.” Check out the new track, plus tour dates below.
