Two Knights is just one of Parker Lawson (guitar/vocals) and Miles DeBruin’s (drums) many bands. The inseparable Denton, Texas duo also play together in Flesh Born, Mimisiku, Father Figure, and Whimper just to name a few. But what sets Two Knights apart is the the pair’s extraordinary bond, of which you can attest to if you’ve seen their ridiculously tight live show.
Following the release of their debut full-length Shut Up, along with an EP and a barrage of splits alongside Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, The Reptilian, Innards, and more, Effing finds the duo navigating hairpin turns with a manic math-rock technicality, at times screeching to an abrupt halt, but the band’s relentless and frantic energy always keep their songs moving forward.
While Two Knights’ genre-defying songs often walk the line between extremes, even their heaviest moments rarely feel outwardly aggressive. Lawson’s honest lyrics tell the tale of the cyclical pattern of anxiety, but you don't have to listen too closely to get a sense of their inner battles. The music itself often bursts and thrashes alongside each and every emotion.
Simply put, Effing will jam your heart down your throat and leave you with your head spinning. But beyond the riveting emotion, there is hope that one day things will get better and Effing might just be the start of good things to come.
