Fusing youthful exuberance with an artistic prowess far beyond their years, Concrete Knives are a band who have illuminated stages around Europe with their unique blend of resonating guitars, elaborate melodies, charging, pounding rhythms and euphoric collective vocals - an enticing and exciting mixture which unfailingly attracts the undivided attention of all who fall into their path. Now, this lauded Normandy outfit are set to unleash their highly anticipated debut album upon the world. Be Your Own King is a collection of tracks harnessing the inspired spirit, the mindset and the powerful energy of this group of Caen natives, which comprises the talents of Nicolas Delahaye, Morgane Colas, Adrien Lepretre, Augustin Hauville and Guillaume Aubertin.
Combine soaring guitars which are so dense their noise is almost glacial, with Jennie Morris’s androgynous, ambivalent yet emphatic vocals, and you will have a band who are called The Adelines and ain’t half a captivating prospect.
Sadly for you, they already exist in this format. Aside from identity theft or an excellent 3D printer, we suggest subscribing to their intrigue in the first press. You’ll find cacophonous rock with melancholic vocals which resonate long after first play.
NANOOK OF THE NORTH
"Nanook of the North expertly fuse the tender emotion of Bon Iver with the devastating musicianship of Explosions in the Sky. [...] Reminiscent of Biffy Clyro’s earlier stuff – meander between quietude and impassioned rock-angst. Tender vocals and gentle, twinkling instrumentation, imbued with a powerful twang of sadness. I would argue there’s something much bigger going on here. A very impressive first offering from a band I look forward to hearing more from." -The Miniature Music Press, Cardiff
