I heard this E.P during the week and cropped up again on Facebook yesterday. After delving in to see who these guys are, I’ve found out that KNOTS stands for King’s Now On The Stage, a three piece Dublin based band who formed in January of this year. So getting this EP out already is a decent feat. A little birdy, though, told me that these guys were previously in a band called Nation of the State.
It was recorded with Ger McDonnell and shows the trio to be competent musicians who know how to write a good song. I like the use of some samples in there, would like to hear more of that, I’m looking forward to seeing how these guys grow and develop and differentiate themselves from the herd.
