Bent Knee have released a live video to accompany the single Catch Light, from You Know What They Mean, which is out now via InsideOut. The clip has been filmed by DeSant Productions at Big Nice Studios, the same place where the Boston band recorded the album.

The six-piece says of the track, "Catch Light is about the pressure women feel to shrink themselves and their ideas. The song is the culmination of over a year of collaborative sonic experiments and marks a drastically new direction for the band.”

Bent Knee have also released a special clip with band members Ben Levin and Vince Welch breaking down the creation of the song from its humble beginnings during a writing session at violinist Chris Baum’s house. 


Bent Knee formed in Boston in 2009 as a collaborative determined to push the boundaries of pop and rock, combining all their influences into a seamless, thrilling whole. The band have gone from strength to strength in recent years. Their last three albums, 2017’s Land Animal, 2016’s Say So and 2014’s Shiny Eyed Babies, were hailed as significant art rock achievements. The band tour North American this winter.
