The Knocks Channel a Moody Bruce Springsteen In New Video, "Dancing With Myself"

by Abby Schreiber

NYC-based electro duo The Knocks have a moody new video for their track, "Dancing With Myself," which we're excited to be premiering here on PAPER. "Bruce Springsteen's 'Streets of Philadelphia' video was inspiration," band member B-Roc (aka Ben Ruttner) says. "We wanted something that reflects our lives -- we live in Chinatown and work down here and we wanted to show us in our element." The funk-laced dance track features vocals by B-Roc's bandmate, JPatt (aka James Patterson), and comes from their upcoming So Classic EP, out April 7th via Big Beat/Neon Gold. Ahead of the release, you can catch the guys down at SXSW where they'll be playing two showcases -- one on 3/18 at 78 Rainey and another on 3/21 at Empire Garage. For a complete list of their tour dates along the West Coast, go HERE and give "Dancing With Myself" a watch, above.
