Having just finished a headline North American tour, which saw them sell-out shows in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Toronto & San Francisco and culminated with a sold-out show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Irish rap trio KNEECAP have today announced details of their Toddla T produced debut single for Heavenly Recordings, ‘Better Way To Live’.
Fontaines D.C. ‘s superconductor frontman Grian Chatten brings a louche and ruffled charm to KNEECAP’s relentless and addictive bounce and his band mateTom Coll joins on drums.
Talking about the track, which is accompanied by a Peadar Ó’Goill directed video filmed in Madden’s Bar in Belfast (where Grian and Kneecap first met), KNEECAP said:
‘A Better Way To Live’ is all about finding that little spark of joy in the monotony, in the day-to-day things that you barely bat an eye at. In between the moments of that repetitive lift of the pint, or spark of a cigarette, there is an opportunity for bliss. underneath that constant noise, there is a silence that can breathe new life and inspiration breaking through the mundane.
