Knife Girl brings us “Why” – new single out now

Fresh new single arrives 30th July, 2021

Just as we’ve got our heads around the refined top/line heavy grooves of the Metro EPKnife Girl – the new project from 20yr old producer Lili Aslo –  forges ahead with new material – “Why”. 
“Why” builds on the Metro EP sound in subtle ways, oozing extra depth, fatter bass lines and a new level of sophistication in the production. But behind the pop thrills, “Why” delivers its own scathing critique of capítalism.

Listen to “Why”

“Why” is released via Soliti on July 30th.
