Knife Girl wets your appetite with “Eat You Alive”

The new single arrives on the 6th April 2023

The ever evolving Knife Girl – producer and songwriter Lili Aslo –  returns with a new supercharged slice of pop goodness – “Eat You Alive” is best served hot, blasting at full volume wearing you dancing shoes. 

“Eat You Alive is about unhinged horniness. It’s about wanting to forget about how love has hurt you for a second and giving into your dumb lust. I wouldn’t say I’m super knowledgeable about Ska but people tell me this song sounds like Ska. I think it sounds like sex. This is the last single before I begin releasing music off of my second full length album.“ Aslo tells us.

Written, produced and performed by Lili Aslo.

Initial Reaction

“It’s a piece of funky goodness that sounds like a sped up version of a lost disco classic. The song combines Prince-like guitars, a shameless octave bass line and Lili’s trademark pitch-manipulated vocals.”Loudness

“The song rattles along at a fair pace from beginning to end, a prominent bass line setting the beat at about 75 humps per minute (yep, I can do ‘dumb lust’, too!) and the more you listen to it the more it takes on a novelty Eurovision persona…All of this just goes to show how innovative and versatile Knife Girl is” Nordic Music Central

“… you can’t deny that turning this up doesn’t just get your body shaking and grooving as you listen through…I love my pop music upbeat and out there” Austin Town Hall

“Songwriter and producer Lili Aslo is a Finnish musical icon…Aslo is back with a deliciously bouncy pop number called ‘Eat You Alive’.” Alfitude

“If your dirty mind makes the name of the song sound somehow rude and double-minded, that’s okay” Rumba
