The Knocks share latest video with a twist of drag

Check out this official music video for “Slow Song” with a twist of Dragonette and starring Aquaria.

Multi-platinum electronic luminaries The Knocks have shared a spellbinding new disco single, “Slow Song” (with Dragonette). Listen HERE and watch the official music video below, which was shot in Mexico City and stars Aquaria from Drag Race and Real Housewives. The video was directed by Austin Peters (HAIM, Major Lazer) and the Director of Photography was Eric Yu (Inception, Savages, Warrior, A$AP Rocky).

On the song The Knocks say, “Slow Song” feels like a great example of how our music has matured, hitting some of our favorite influences from disco to rock to dance. Working with Martina [Dragonette] and doing a record together is full circle, as our first ever tour as The Knocks was with Dragonette.” 

The Knocks have been hailed worldwide for a carefree electronic sound that freely draws from soul, funk, disco, hip hop, house, and pop. Comprised of James Patterson and Ben Ruttner, the NYC-based duo have unleashed a dizzying array of dance music for more than a decade, spanning two acclaimed albums, multiple EPs, collaborations with artists across the musical spectrum, high profile network TV appearances, and showstopping DJ sets and live performances all over the world.

Martina Sorbara, better known as the electro-pop outfit Dragonette, has lived multiple musical lifetimes over the past 15 years. A Juno-winning artist and sought-after songwriter, Sorbara has scored numerous global hits, including “Pick Up the Phone,” “Let it Go,” and the chart-topping “Hello” with Martin Solveig. Sorbara is currently working on Dragonette’s highly-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Royal Blues.

“Slow Song” (with Dragonette) heralds the NYC-based duo’s hugely anticipated third studio album, due April 29, 2022.
