Knot share new single “The World” from their self-titled debut, out 8/28

Knot, the new Brooklyn-based band comprised of the former members of cult favorites Krill, have shared “The World,” the latest from their upcoming self-titled debut album. Knot is a bigger, more ruminative version of Krill, but it’s also something that’s distinct unto itself, with a perspective all its own. 
Of the song, Knot’s Jonah Furman says “‘The World’ is supposed to be about the experience of wanting to change the world — or maybe the experience of insisting on wanting to change the world. I guess in some basic way it’s just about anti-escapism — what it means to accept the world, your life, the political situation, as real, as something one cannot retreat from, and as something one should try to not want to retreat from, but to push through, look in the face, and demand some kind of transformation. In my head there was the phrase “another world is possible,” which is heard in movements and protests, and seems to be consciously or unconsciously associated with the idea that we can build something parallel or separate from the corrupted and horrific institutions and instantiations of actually-existing society. I want on some level to reject that; not that change can’t happen, but I want to insist that it happens through, not around, the sick and failed parts of human political experience.”

Knot is available for pre-order now and due August 28th via Exploding In Sound.
