Boston-based sextet Bent Knee have just released their new album, ‘You Know What They Mean‘ via InsideOutMusic/Sony. To coincide with the album release, the band have shared the video for Catch Light. Watch the video clip below via YouTube.

On this album we wanted to do more with less,” explains Vince Welch (synth/guitar/production). “For Catch Light, we traded some of the more cerebral forms and rhythms we’ve used in the past for something more guttural. We’re really happy with how director Adam Peditto and producer Katie Dvorak (of The World Is A Beautiful Place & I’m No Longer Afraid To Die) captured this approach in the video as well.”

We were in the best place that we’ve been in,” says singer and keyboard player Courtney Swain of the new album. “In terms of people and as a group, where I think we learned to pick our battles and just have fun writing this. So this album really portrays us as people, in addition to our music, a lot more than any of our other records. We’re a big group with a lot of different personalities and a lot of voices, but our music brings us together. On the past albums, you could hear the music, but you couldn’t really hear who we are.”

The band joins Thank You Scientist for a five-week fall tour, kicking off on Nov. 7 in Rochester.
