Kid Astray – Fall To My Knees
Long time no see! We featured Norwegian synth-pop band Kid Astray several times a couple of years ago and today we’re happy to celebrate their return with a new single, Fall To My Knees, out via Sony Music. And we’re glad to hear that their musical coordinates haven’t changed too much: bouncing electronic beat and massive synth to create bold pop hooks à la Passion Pit. So good!
Speaking about what influenced their latest single, the band said, “Fall to My Knees” is about a gig we played in Berlin in the spring of 2015. We were having a really tough time, battling some undue negativity in the media and in the people around us. We just wanted to quit, go to sleep, and not play this showcase at a club. But that show just blew up and made us remember why in the world we’re so determined to keep on doing this. It’s pretty big for a couple of 20 year olds to able to play a sold-out show in the hipster capitol of Europe. And this song is a reminder of that.”
