Kneecap have today announced details of their debut album, Fine Art will arrive on Heavenly Recordings (H. Hawkline, Boy Azooga) on June 14. The LP was produced by Toddla T, the 12-track album, merges Irish with English and satire with socially conscious lyrics, is fiercely intelligent, consistently hilarious and genuinely thought-provoking. Theirs is a voice which comes screaming from the too-often deprived areas of the North of Ireland, speaking in a language which is too-often ignored.

The trio of Mo Chara, Móglaí Bap, and DJ Próvaí, who recently took this year’s Sundance Film Festival by storm with their self-titled Rich Peppiatt directed semi-biopic film starring Michael Fassbender, have today also shared the video for “Sick In The Head”, the latest track to be taken from the album.

“Sick In The Head” features a chugging old school hip hop groove and dual voices frustrated at reaching the ends of both their overdrafts and their tethers. Talking about the track, KNEECAP said:

“When working on the album we had periods of great productivity but also periods with a total lack of anything creatively. Towards the end of recording we hit a proper wall and this is the result. Our mental health was being tested and we said f*ck it it we’re doomed to mental torture we want to have some money to get through it. We’ve had enough of it while being broke round Belfast.”
