BENT KNEE

A powerful exercise in restraint and release with explosive results.
— Consequence of Sound
Grand, serene, and progressive... the band’s instrumental builds are unbelievably powerful.
— The Needle Drop

A musical family that works – and works hard – at their art, Bent Knee came into being in 2009 at Boston, MA. Fiercely innovative, the ensemble pushes themselves far beyond the conventional definition of “indie rock.” Drawing from an expansive sonic palette edged by the touchstones of heavy psych, baroque pop, and avant-jazz, the ensemble craft compositions where melodies swell and collapse, only to coalesce unexpectedly into anthemic crescendo.

Bent Knee's sophomore album "Shiny Eyed Babies" distillis the musical lives of six virtuosic obsessives down into something bracingly new. Both raw and cerebral, the album can be enjoyed simply floating on the surface, certainly, but those willing to plunge into its depths will find revealed the hidden secrets that dwell beneath and touch the spark of creativity.
