Hailing from Nashville, TN, Five Knives are the perfect intersection of where electronica and rock n’ roll meet. Front woman Anna M’Queen, keyboardists/programmers Nathan Barlowe and Zach Hall, and drummer Shane Wise grind heavy synth riffs into an undeniably catchy sound that’s rooted in old-school punk, new school electronic and pure, unadulterated pop. They have scored three Top 10 Dance hits with “The Rising,” “Sugar” and “Savages,” their songs have been remixed by UZ, Jauz, Chris Lake, Pretty Lights and more, and the Eddie Amador remix of “The Rising” was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording. Five Knives released their Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, The Killers)-produced debut album Savages June 2nd and the video for the album’s title track premiered recently on Entertainment Weekly. The band spent the fall on tour with Icona Pop and has shared the stage with artists like Tove Lo and Elliphant in between US festival dates at Hangout, Firefly, Summerfest and Electric Zoo.
