New Video Alert - The Knocks – Midnight City ft. Mandy Lee

NY based producer/DJ duo, The Knocks, comes in the form of the pair’s contagious electro take on M83’s hit song Midnight City.  The track features stunning vocals from Mandy Lee to accompany the dance fuelled cover that has already made its mark by reaching #1 on the Hype Machine twitter charts in under 24 hours of its release.  The video to accompany the track, directed by Max Manspit (director of David Lynch’s I Know), is a real feel good video that epitomises the party vibe of the song.

With their new 6-track EP, Magic, to be released at the end of the month this track is the perfect way to end Summer.  The guys are currently working on their debut record which will be released in September and the EP follows the success of indie single Make it Better and their recent release Dancing With the DJ.

Along with DJ Shadow, the duo have recently toured with the likes of Ellie Goulding, Sleigh Bells, MIA and Big Boi along with headlining their own dates in the UK and US. No plans as yet to tour Oz. 

Check out the video below. 

Dancing With the DJ and Make it Better are available on iTunes now
