[PREMIERE] mAsis: Knees
If Jim Henson's 1986 cult classic Labyrinth gets a sequel, I think "Knees" by Glendale, California-based trio mAsis should be part of its blueprint. The song bursts with imagination including a playful pitch-bent synth chord in a way that's both delightful and a little far-out. The reverb adds to this fairy tale fun by giving a peculiar ghost-like suspense while the song flows in sweeping meanders. But as I'm learning with each day, it's not about the destination, it's about the journey and this song, this band, have that philosophy down pat.
"Knees tell a lot about the lives someone's led. Unlike our hearts which are hidden, our knees tell a visible story. Knees ache from stress, they bruise from work, and they need the help of others when the weight of the world gets to be too much." - mAsis
