Taylor Knox has announced his forthcoming sophomore album, Here Tonight, and as part of the announcement he’s released a video for a collaborative single with July Talk titled “Everybody Knows.”
The new track is a dark, groovy tune with a catchy instrumental line, steady drum beat, and gritty, processed vocals. “Everybody Knows” definitely has a July Talk vibe, with the crooning vocals of Peter Dreimanis and Leah Faye’s falsetto harmonies accompanying Knox’s modulated melodies perfectly. The accompanying gloomy video sees Knox trying on a variety of personas in front of a set of microphones.
“When Director Andy Keen pitched this concept for the video, I thought it was so fun because I’ve often thought about how we all have personas we present to the world,” Knox explains in a statement. “It’s not just something performers or artists do, but we all perform everyday on in our lives…especially in the age of social media. When creating my music, I try to explore different aspects of myself, in order to better understand the world around me.”
Watch the video for “Everybody Knows” below.
Here Tonight drops on June 7th via Cadence Recordings, and you can catch Knox playing his new tunes at his album release show on June 6th at Adelaide Hall.
