Slow Knights – the group created by Del Marquis of Scissor Sisters – was born out of a love of Soul, Freestyle, outer space and baby-making jams. Marquis fuses elements of metal, rock, RnB & electro.
Cosmos, the bands first album, started off with Marquis on vocals, however the other members blew the lid off the vocals, breathing new life into the lyrics. Cosmos was topped off with live tracking by former members of the New Power Generation. These sessions were recorded in Minneapolis to get just the right mix of organic playing and modern programming.
For the new record, Living in a Dark World, Marquis focused on expanding the sound & production. For this record the singers dictate the lyrical direction, mining their psyches for drama...of which there was plenty.
Living in a Dark World, stretches from pop-funk like "Candy Sugar Rush" to the abstract with “Into the Void” up against the metal laced soul of "Diamond Ring" stretching into new territory.
