After forming in 2011, New York quartet, Water Knot have gone from strength to strength; their debut release Big Brother two years ago set the band on the path to success and they will no doubt further themselves with the release of their newest EP, Sometimes, on November 11.
The forthcoming EP showcases the band’s phenomenal talent, filling a gap in a market currently bereft of a rock and roll band. With guitar riffs reminiscent of Hendrix and a vocal to rival the raspiest of rockers, Water Knot are tipped for big things.
Spotted by industry high-flyers performing at festivals throughout America last year, the band’s latest feat is to be included on the soundtrack of Homefront, which will feature the lead track, Lust, from the forthcoming EP. Set for release in November this year, the film stars Sylvester Stallone, James Franco and Jason Statham and will introduce Hollywood to the sound of Water Knot.
For a relatively new band, Water Knot’s statistics are impressive. It seems that music lovers discovered them first and now the industry is ready to follow. After they played at Bonaroo, American Songwriter said of the band: “The New York quartet brought high energy to their set, which combined Floydian space rock sound with eerie, ripping guitar solos”. Comparisons such as these are high praise for the band and with an album in the pipeline for Spring 2014, Water Knot look set to continue their success well into the new year.
Sometimes will be released in the UK on November 11. You can pre-order the full EP here.
