Bloody Knees are Bradley Griffiths, Sam Conway and brothers Tom and Christian Wilkes, collective noise-makers as teenagers, BK took their infectious spirit to the masses, playing festivals across the country and shows alongside the likes of Wolf Alice, The Magic Gang, Swim Deep, Honeyblood, Superfood and a load more.
Bloody Knees are everything you would expect - noisy, teething with pop-punk sentiments & sleazy riffs. All in a delicate, rapturous balance - whilst packing enough of a punch to keep you on your toes with each and every listen. If you like being covered in blood, push pits and stage diving or even if you’re prone to thinking too much, it’s time to listen up – to the band’s ferocious, no-holds-barred style, that's pushing their sound towards new visceral heights.
Formed in late 2015, four-piece Honey Lung came on to the alternative rock scene in a storm.Influenced by the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr, and contemporaries such as Alex G and Yuck!, they bring together fuzzy, driving bass lines, thunderous drums, soaring guitars and melodic, introspective vocals into one brew of nostalgic 90's-esque alternative rock with a modern twist.
Honey Lung released their debut EP, 'Kind of Alone' with RYP Recordings in November 2016. The single off the EP: 'Something' was chosen as John Kennedy's 'Xposure Big One', and has been played, along with the second single 'End of Time', on his Radio X show, where they also went for a recording session and live interview. They were also BBC London Introducing's featured artist of the week, as well as having being featured in Louder Than War, The Metro Online and Line of Best Fit.
Most recently, they became a four piece, with Jamie Batten on vocals and guitar, Charlie Gardner on guitar, Omri Covo on drums and newcomer Kerstin Resander on bass. They will be taking a short break to record a new single and B side during the winter of 2016/17, returning for more in the new year.
