I know a couple other people have already jumped on the new 7″ from Victoria’s Aidan Knight, but I can’t help myself from following suit. The A-side, “Friendly Fires”, starts slowly, accentuating the heartache and remorse when Knight takes an extra beat pause between each couplet before exploding down the backstretch with a sing-along that can wake the dead and drive out the ghosts of lovers past.
I already fell in love with Knight’s tender, patient delivery and rich autumn tones, but this seemingly simple song strips back any extra notes and hints at a depth that usually takes several years and releases to reveal successfully. The vinyl is getting released on November 30th, so make sure you head over to Adventure Boys Club and pick up your copy. You won’t be sorry.
