The Knocks convene with Gallant for danceable new record, ‘Exit Sign’
Feel-good gurus, The Knocks and vocal gymnast, Gallant recently united for what can assuredly be described as a suave, self-indulgent record that plays to both parties’ strong suits. “Exit Sign” sources its refined vocals from the R&B artist, whose involvement with the single precedes the arrival of his sophomore album, Sweet Insomnia, due on October 25. The “Weight In Gold” singer is no stranger to the electronic ether either, raking in collaborations with the likes of ZHU, Big Wild, and more. The Knocks, meanwhile, have been riding the wave of their tenures writing score for the likes of The US Open and iPhone X—to name a few.
Distinctly danceable, “Exit Sign” is both light and mellow in its makeup. The mid-tempo tune is well within The Knocks’ nu-disco wheelhouse, and follows the production pair’s previous, Whethan-assisted “Summer Luv.”
