Exactly 12 months since their debut full-length release, “Glass Ceiling”, Trophy Knives are back at it with the announcement of their sophomore record, “Look The Other Way”.
“Look The Other Way” is set to hit shelves on the 19th of March 2021 and will feature 10 brand new tracks including the singles “We’ve Had Enough”, the title track “Look The Other Way, as well as “High Horses”.
With multiple tours and festival appearances getting canceled due to the Covid-19 situation, Trophy Knives made full use of their time during the lock-down by crafting this record.
“The writing of this record was definitely not conventional, as ideally, we would have loved more studio time to experiment sonically. Having said that, this record was born out of necessity; as we were starting to write demos, the tragic death of George Floyd happened, and as the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum, we were baffled by the tone-deaf comments made by people locally and globally. We were baffled by the way certain individuals have it in themselves to ridicule a movement when they have no idea what it’s like to be a minority. If it sounds like we are angry on this record, it’s because we are. Make no mistake, these are protest songs”, Vinesh Muniandy, vocalist of Trophy Knives explains.
“The only reason why certain people can afford to look the other way when it comes to the plight of minorities is because they come from a place of privilege and that needs to change, fast.”, he adds.
Trophy Knives has decided to release the first 5 songs from “Look The Other Way” as a preview of what’s to come on the 19th of March 2021.
All 5 tracks will be available on all major streaming platforms as of the 6th of November 2020.
Trophy Knives has also released a 6-minute short-film appropriately titled, “Look The Other Way” on Youtube which was shot by Nadeem Salam, and edited by Samuel Shapiro in Los Angeles.
