Live Review: PREMIERE: French electro comes to Melbourne with Knightfall's 'Speed Machine'

12 May 2017 | 12:10 pm | Staff Writer

Elusive Melbourne duo Knightfall pay homage to the glory days of French electro dance music in their debut single, 'Speed Machine'.

As far as debut singles go, Melbourne's KNIGHTFALL have given us a feeling we haven't felt in a long, long time. Premiering their debut single today here on Purple Sneakers, the elusive duo have not only shared blistering debut release, but they've also built a time machine straight back to the days of ED BANGER in doing so!

Titled 'Speed Machine', this is made for those die hard DAFT PUNK and JUSTICE fans. With an electrifying lick, falsetto vocals, and a thumping beat, KNIGHTFALL have employed all the building blocks to make an absolute stomper of a track with 'Speed Machine'. However, using their undeniable production skills, they've amplified their own modern sound to create something that's more than just paying tribute. It's a sound that's put them in a league of their own.

With a hook that sounds like the Bee Gees wandered into a 2007 French nightclub, and an intensity that doesn't waiver even for a second, the duo have hit the ground running with this number. With an EP on the way, we're practically praying at their feet for more music like this - we can't get enough!
