Black Boots, the newest addition to the star-studded family that is Ultra Records, want to give you more than just great music. The duo – comprised of Mikey Francis (formerly of Afghan Raiders) and Lightknife – are here to deliver a message. They want to provide an escape, “encourage chaos, sexuality, expression, and independence.”
Self-described as having “an electronic body, but a rock ‘n’ roll soul,” their debut single Rebels In The Night falls somewhere on the musical spectrum between New Order, The Presets, and Swedish House Mafia, combining Mikey’s subdued but emotional voice with guitars and sweeping, euphoric hooks. The song is accompanied by a captivating video that will thrust you deep into the world of Black Boots. Expect plenty more from them via Ultra in 2013, and with this video currently sitting at nearly 150,000 views, I’d say their message is getting out loud and clear so far.
