Bringing the Chorlton Weekender to a close on the Sunday night will be the brilliant, Young Knives, with their unique blend of post-punk/art-pop…
Hailing from Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Young Knives have been releasing music for over a decade. Their first album Voices of Animals and Men saw three singles entering the UK Top 40 and a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize.
In 2008 the band released Superabundance, which secured a couple of Top 40 singles and included the band’s most synched track Turn Tail. The band then decided to get away from major label pressures, and started their own label, Gadzöök.
In 2011 they released their third album Ornaments from the Silver Arcade followed by Vision In Rags and Woman and in 2013, released their most recent album, Sick Octave, to great critical acclaim, ‘Young Knives have spun a double six… Songs vibrate with a poppiness that gleams through the weirdness’ NME
