In the past, Band of Horses has released solid collections of smooth and almost spacey tunes. Their timbre has been arguably mellower than most. But with this new track comes a sniff of a new chapter for the Seattle band. This track “Knock Knock,” from new project Mirage Rock, hits you directly in the face, its instruments right there in front of you rather than sounding like they are past an arm’s reach. Its anthem-like persona easily drives you to your close eyes, stomp your feet, and clap when clapping is called for.

Band of Horses’ Mirage Rock comes out on September 18th via Columbia Records.
