Today, The Beths reveal the third and final single from their upcoming album, Expert In A Dying Field. 'Knees Deep' is an anthem of bravery; a bouncy ode to taking leaps, paired with a music video that puts that puts those leaps to the test as the band tackles the Auckland Harbour Bridge bungy jump. The song channels Stokes' angular songwriting with bright, bouncy pop riffs to create yet another instant Beths classic. And we'd happily listen to this whilst bungy jumping off the Harbour Bridge, wouldn't you?
Of the track, front member Liz Stokes explains: “I'm the kind of person who wants to go swimming but takes like ten minutes to get all the way into the cold water, slowly and painfully. I hate this about myself, and am kind of envious of people who can just jump straight in the deep end. In a shocking twist, this is also a metaphor?! For how I wish I was the kind of person who was brave and decisive instead of cautious and scared.”
Expert In A Dying Field is out on September 16 via Carpark Records. You can preorder it via the Flying Nun Record Shop here.
