It’s a rich and shimmery track infusing a more euphoric sound into a more conventional electro-pop dynamic, resulting in a track that not only stands out from its peers, but is also enjoyable throughout. Watch below.
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 capital of Europe. And this song is a reminder of that.“
