DC upstarts Knife Wife just signed with Sister Polygon Records, and have shared a new track to celebrate.
“Dogs” is an unsettling tune. “All the little dogs in the fridge,” the trio repeat throughout the song, layering vocal melodies with ease. Underneath the vocals are a muddy guitar line and barely-there drums, carefully restraining themselves when the time to build comes. It’s an exciting track from the up-and-comers, a satisfying taste of what’s to come.
Good news, then—Knife Wife will release their debut album, Family Party, on July 12 via Sister Polygon Records. You can pre-order it here. Listen to “Dogs” below, and check out the details for Family Party further down.
