Night Knight – Set It On Fire


Today’s feature comes courtesy of a Greek group called Night Knight — the side project of an active musician in the Athens underground scene named Serafeim Giannakopoulos. Together with bandmates Stelios Provis (bass), Manolis Giannikios (drums) and Minas Liakos (guitar), they created the album God Is A Motherfucker, released via Inner Ear earlier this year. While standout track “Set It On Fire” is not terribly innovative, it does have the feel of a warm embrace from an old friend — the kind of comfort that can only come from familiarity. Acknowledging as much, Giannakopoulos proudly recognizes his influences — ranging from Neil Young to Creedence Clearwater Revival to Radiohead — rather than neglecting them in the name of “pseudo-originality.” And sometimes, that’s just enough.
