knitting Sign to Mint, Announces Debut Record with Single "Spirit Gum"


Today Montreal's knitting announce their debut LP Some Kind of Heaven, out on Mint September 6!

What started out as a pandemic hibernation project is now the fully fledged Montreal indie-rock-unit knitting. With “sinuous, bouncy guitars…and choruses that have the potential to metamorphose into earworms” (FME), knitting makes guitar driven and lyrically introspective indie rock evoking the nostalgia of 90s alternative rock bands like Pavement, Pixies and Sonic Youth.

Formed two years ago, knitting has already shared the stage with the likes of Nap Eyes, Loving and Cherry Glazerr, and toured and performed at festivals across North America. Having recently wrapped production with Scott “Monty” Munro (Preoccupations, Chad Vangaalen), knitting’s highly anticipated debut album comes out September 6 2024. 

Recorded with Scott Munro of Preoccupations, the album was written over a period of several years when Dempsey was navigating experiences of transition and coming into their non-binary identity, and addresses those experiences while touching on many of the complications and growing pains of early adulthood.

The lead single "Spirit Gum" is a song about the end of a domestic relationship that dissects that emotional space with a brooding intensity. Layers of guitar recalling 90s alt-rock greats like Hole and contemporaries like Dilly Dally and Momma, give mesmeric weight to a song that traces the way a physical space can be transformed by the emotional state in which it's experienced.
