KNEECAP share garage-inspired new single ‘Love Making’ and announce US tour

KNEECAP have shared a sensual new single ‘Love Making’, featuring Nino, and announced a US tour.

The new garage-inspired track was described by the Irish rap trio as “baby making music, not much else to define here, inspired by 90s garage tunes.” Within it, they celebrate a one-night stand – “Ní amháin gnéas ach craic, lets make a mess and relax/Cos we’ve got vibes in stacks, local snacks and hotel sex,” they rap.

Nino, meanwhile, takes the chorus, singing: “You know, I know I’m the one you’re gonna be taking/From your show to your home, me and you let’s be love making.”

‘Love Making’ is taken from the Irish rap trio’s upcoming album ‘Fine Art’, which will be released on June 14 via Heavenly Recordings. The Toddla T-produced album also features the previously released singles ‘Sick In The Head’, ‘Fine Art’ and Grian Chatten collaboration ‘Better Way To Live’.

Kneecap recently spoke to NME about recent controversies and what to expect from their debut album.


The Belfast rap trio have been making headlines recently after leading the Irish bands boycotting SXSW, in solidarity with Palestine and protest against the showcase festival’s sponsorship from the US military and weapons manufacturers.

Asked what statement they want to make with ‘Fine Art’, rapper Mo Chara said: “Sonically, we wanted it all to be pretty representative of the gigs. The gigs can go from pretty chill at one point to then totally chaotic. That combined with all the controversy of the last few years has been the real driving force of the songs and what we want to talk about. This is the real introduction to Kneecap. We’ve been touring for five or six years, we’ve got loads of music out, but this is our real debut so we wanted it to be inherently Kneecap. This is our world.”

Meanwhile, the band have announced a short US run of shows for September, which includes a show at Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville. They will also be performing in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Washington, Columbus and Chicago.
