Brightness - Year Of The Goat

Brightness - Year Of The Goat
Across nine meticulously crafted tracks, Brightness is a clear evolution in Knight’s songwriting and sound, following his debut album, Teething which received widespread international acclaim. In his sophomore offering, Brightness delivers lyricism that is at-times unsettlingly raw, always thought-provoking and explorational in its varied accounts of the relationship between tribulation and transcendence. It is a record that is complex, textured, contemplative and mature in its inception, creation and delivery.

Brightness was recorded with producer Sam Griffin Owens (Cass McCombs, Chris Cohen, Sam Evian) at 'Spillway Sound' in a stretch of nature in upstate New York known as The Catskills. The area is said to stir wonder in visitors lucky enough to experience its beauty, from the addled attendees of Woodstock Festival to 19th-century transcendentalist, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Knight affirms, “the location and pairing (with Owens) couldn’t have been more fitting”.

About this track...

On ‘Year Of The Goat’ Knight see-saws between the apocalyptic and the mundane in what he’s summarized as “a song about rebirth.” In the chorus, he chimes ”Asphalt heaving…Heavens are leaking,” while later, blankly describes being “parked outside of Arby’s” while “something by Rihanna is playing”.
