The Young Knives

Biography

On paper, the Knives should certainly not be defined as being fashionable. Sporting NHS spectacles, ill-fitting charity shop suits and haircuts more fitting of retired World War Two pilots, The Young Knives quite frankly look odd... they live in the countryside, like gardening and stand out from their contemporaries by a country mile. So why on earth are Leicestershire's finest, increasingly deemed so fashionable? The Young Knives are outsiders, they are the new anti-heroes: but most importantly, they deliver incredible, classic British pop songs.
