The Knocks “Brightside”

Boasting a shiny-happy 80’s dance-pop synth shimmer that “How Will I Know”/ “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”-era Whitney Houston would’ve sold one of her Godzilla-sized four-styles-in-one mega-wigs to get behind her, “Brightside”, the first single from NY production duo The Knocks‘ upcoming Magic EP, washes over the body like a wave of furry puppies, rainbows, lemonade and everything else feel-good to distract one from the gray depression of real life.

With only one sample of its giddy “nah-nah”‘s and the chorus’ anony-vocal cries about making it “on the right side”, “Brightside” will have you ready to punch the clouds with glee, fumbling over yourself to get it permanently added to your Ultimate TGIF Anthems (That You’ll Also Listen To On Non-Friday’s Because Sometimes You Need A Pick Me Up In The Middle Of The Week To Keep From Strangling Folks) playlists.

The single, featuring remixes from Fred Falke, Discotech and more, drops October 18th.
