Sweet as a moment
With a first proper single and also debut album on the horizon, New York native Samuel is about to get BIG. But while that doesn't come, there's still enough to entertain us in the meantime. In this track, for example, Samuel is lending new vocals to a remix of the Temper Trap's Fader song. Now, I say remix, but I could also call it completely new work, because what The Knocks do in here is basically grabbing the original, smash it into pieces, and then take it to a whole new level, with Samuel's stellar performance flying around a load of quite amazing spacial synths that seem locked in a perpetual cosmic groove. Talk about reaching for the stars.
