Irish rap trio Kneecap today share “Love Making,” the track is lifted from their debut album, Fine Art, set for release on June 14 via Heavenly Recordings. Alongside the new single, the band has also announced a run of U.S. shows for this September including their largest U.S. headline to date at Knockdown Center, Brooklyn on September 19.

Combining the spirit of the early ’90s rave scene with the frenetic energy of the 21st century club music, “Love Making” sees the Belfast trio, Mo Chara, Móglaí Bap and DJ Próvaí, bring the swing in all the right places while still managing to bounce along on a big bottom end, or as the band simply put it, it’s “baby making music, not much else to define here, inspired by 90s garage tunes.” The accompanying video comes inspired by 90s rave/garage videos. Shot in West Belfast in one night. Directed by Peadar O’Goill.

After taking this year’s Sundance Film Festival by storm, with their self-titled, Rich Peppiatt directed, semi-biopic film starring Michael Fassbender – notably the festival’s first Irish language film, and subsequent winner of “The Audience Award: NEXT” – the trio subsequently embarked on a sold-out headline U.S. tour during which they also supported Dropkick Murphys on St Patrick’s Day at the 5000 capacity Music Hall, Fenway Park, Boston.
