If you’re blogroll is relatively refined, or you tend to teeter toward strictly hip-hop focused websites, there’s a good chance you’re completely unaware of The Knocks. But, that’s okay. Using capable vocalists and actual song formulas, the NY duo is currently making some of the more marketable electronic dance tracks out right now. And with arrival of their latest Magic EP, the two-man amusement park have released their first ever music video, to the sing-a-long dance ditty they call, “Brightside.”
Featuring a lead character who should end up with his own spin-off sitcom and a theme that literally had me laughing out loud, this stand-out visual is legitimately one of the more entertaining I’ve seen all year. Which is a bold statement, I know, seeing as we’re almost halfway through Santa’s month. But, when it comes to hilarity and great tunes, just know I’d never lie to you.
