Nola Wren is back with “Knife” featuring Kill Dave

It’s been a while that we haven’t heard about New-York based artist Nola Wren who is now back with a brand new pop single “Knife” in which she collaborated with David Dahlquist who is, for the first time, under the name of Kill Dave. Fans of electro-pop addictive songs, you are going to be pleased!

Floating between the stunningly sweet voice of Nola and some cold yet colourful synths and guitars, the message is also a statement since the lyrics are inspired by the case of rapist Brock Turner:

I wrote the first verse to ‘Knife’ the same day I read [Turner’s] sexual assault victim’s letter that she read to him in court. So you can imagine my state of mind. At that point, the song didn’t have a title, nor was it really even a song. Once we got into the studio, things continued to develop and the core of its meaning took on something more personal. For me, ‘Knife’ is about a frustrating co-dependent relationship with an ex from years ago – one of those long stories best told with a stiff drink in a dimly lit bar. It might mean something different to Dave.
