A new song by Aussie duo Knife Party "Begin Again" has just surfaced being uploaded by an unknown Soundcloud account. We got a taste of their upcoming EP a few weeks back with the song "Resistance" which was a bass heavy electro festival banger following in the style we have grown to expect from Knife Party.
Well today after listening to "Begin Again" we hear a completely new side of Knife Party, bringing in some influences of their other project Pendelum as far as more focused on melodies then the drop, which this song doesn't really have. We also hear Rob Swire of Knife Party / Pendelum lay down some of his own vocals, which makes us remember when he did the same thing for deadmau5's iconic "Ghosts N Stuff".
Listen below to the preview and we will keep you posted on details as they roll in. What are your thoughts on the change of pace from Knife Party? Enjoy.
