Knife Party Changes Up Sounds on Leaked ‘Begin Again’

Knife Party

Knife Party is preparing for the release the forthcoming Abandon Ship album in October, dropping “Resistance” to the masses just last month.

But the new song, “Begin Again,” has leaked and is a stark contrast to “Resistance.” While the former screeches and serves up industrial techno (or just post-apocalyptic) vibes within its peaks and valleys, “Begin Again” sounds like a late entry to last summer’s disco party.

The shimmering house track — which features vocals from a yet-to-be-identified singer — is far happier in its tone than “Resistance.” In fact, its sound reflects some of the uplifting feelings usually reserved for the likes of Calvin Harris and Zedd.

“Begin Again” may throw off fans looking for more rugged material from the Australian DJs, and it’s unclear if the tune is going to appear on Abandon Ship, but it’s a welcome, genre-changing twist (or a throwback to Pendulum days?) to keep us on our toes in the lead-up to its release.
