Bent Knee are comprised of Lead singer and keyboardist Courtney Swain, Guitarist Ben Levin, Bassist Jessica Kion and drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth. Violinist Chris Baum’s kinetic violin work provides drama, grace and intrigue. Producer and live sound designer Vince Welch weaves Bent Knees forthcoming release Land Animal. Their debut full-length comes out on June 23rd via Inside Out/Sony. The group has performed hundreds of shows across the world to date. During the fall of 2016, Bent Knee played for ecstatic audiences as an opener for the U.S. leg of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s farewell tour. Today, the band premieres the video for their new single “Terror Bird.”

Quote from Chris Baum:

We all have an idea in our heads of how a good person thinks and feels. Good people feel sad when hearing about tragedies, angry when reading about injustices, and happy for other’s successes, but sometimes, our brains fail to meet our own standards and slump into an apathetic mush instead. “Terror Bird” is about fighting our natural inclination to become indifferent toward the world around us. In a globalized, hyper-connected society, it’s a problem we wrestle with now more than ever.
