Artist of the Day: Five Knives

I should really hate Five Knives. At times, they're probably the worst of the so-called "American EDM revolution," with some cheesy-as-hell and pretty watered-down wubs with slightly annoying rapped vocals. However, at other times there's so much pent-up energy and kick-ass bursting from within the group that I can't help but have fun. And, to be fair, there's much good about Five Knives - "All Fall Down," for example, is one of the finest examples of synth-pop-meets-electro-house-tropes I've heard in some time, and it's raw around the edges in the perfect ways. The band is traveling on the Vans Warped Tour this year, and here's hoping one of us here at Muzik Dizcovery gets a chance to see them — it's sure to be a fun show.
