Union of Knives – We Are All Doing Drugs

By on Wednesday, 11th March 2009 at 4:30 pm

Union of Knives (side cover)Following their debut ‘Violence & Birdsong’, Union of Knives are back with their funky electro breaks. ‘We Are All Doing Drugs’ is the first single since the debut and the Glaswegians are on top form as they provide a smasher with spooky synth and bleak basslines. Their somewhat dub-rcok-synth-skank is wretched and beautiful at the same time.

Working on their new album ‘The Anti-Fire’ with Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails due out later this year, this band are one to watch in the coming months. Speaking on the title of their new album the band say: “We chose the words ‘The Anti-Fire’ to represent the human capacity for sucking up anger, despair and the bleakest moments in life and transforming them into something wholly positive and more constructive. It seems to us that from the most minor spats to the deepest depression there exists a germ of opportunity that offers and alternative to the obvious. This kind of alchemy is a recurring theme through the album.”

You can stream and download the track for free here. We’ll have updates and news on the band as they prepare to release their sophomore in the coming months.. A mash up of ‘Born Slippy’ from Underworld is also available for free stream and download at this link.
