Fresh off their March 2021 ‘RU HIGH’ single with Mallrat, New York City-based electronic duo The Knocks are back with their new single ‘Bedroom Eyes’ featuring electro-pop group Studio Killers.
Out on Big Beat Records, the carefree tune celebrates all things old school and disco. Funky bass guitar licks, groovy drum patterns and rousing chords merge perfectly with the light-hearted vocals of Studio Killers and evoke a childlike wonder. Check out the track below.
The Knocks showcased the cover on Instagram prior to the track’s release, which hints at childhood nostalgia. The image shows a classic adolescent bedroom with a spinning disco ball and band posters, along with a message that discussed how “nostalgia is comforting,” especially in dark times.
The Knocks and Studio Killers also released a lighthearted music video, set in a supermarket. Each character dances in their own unique style until a mugger, played by comedian Casey Frey, tries to break into the store. However, the lyrics influence Frey’s character to drop what he’s doing and dance. It’s a feel-good message to love each other, be happy and celebrate.
“We love how the music video turned out,” The Knocks said in a statement. “It’s over the top and ridiculous and reminded us a bit of the classic old school dance videos from the 90s.”
