Los Angeles-based husband/wife Shoegaze/Dream Pop duo The Know have shared a new single called “ME”, evoking “the blissful times of a new relationship”. The song is the second off of the duo’s forthcoming EP.
Jennifer Farmer of the band reveals:
It’s a love song about the thrill you feel when you connect with another person.
Other member David Knowles is an engineer and producer who also this year co-produced the Sharon Van Etten album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong.
The Know began in late 2018 when Daniel Knowles suggested to his wife, Jennifer Farmer, that they isolate themselves in their home studio. They had no real plan, just a mutual love of Beach House, Julee Cruise, Ye Ye, The Jesus and Mary Chain, 60’s girl groups, Dream Pop, and the storytelling lyricism of Patsy Cline and The National.
The result was their debut EP shared in 2020, a blend of Dream Pop and Shoegaze, titled wearetheknow. The Know’s upcoming second EP (EP2) delivers “snapshots of love, loss, isolation, uncertainty, sadness and connection”. Completed during the pandemic and in a time of intense isolation, the EP was produced by Farmer and Knowles and mostly recorded in their home studio in a short span of time.
