The Knocks “Bang Bang” Is The New Dance Track for Summer 2022
For anyone needing a new song on their summer 2022 playlist, “Bang Bang” by The Knocks (feat. Donna Missal) is the perfect song to add. With its high energy beat and fun synth instrumental, it’s a song that can get anyone to dance during those summer nights. Donna Missal’s vocals on “Bang Bang” bring the song to another level, which is the exact vibe The Knocks state they were going for,
“We wanted to make something that felt bright, easy and dance floor ready for summer while feeling like a modern touch on a throwback sound… We had our hearts set on Donna Missal from the start. She balances between raw emotive vocal delivery and delicate playfulness and we knew we wanted someone that could navigate the changes as the song progresses.”
The music video further compliments the vibe of the song as something to be played at clubs this summer. Aquaria (winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, tenth season) is the main star of the music video, as she dances along to “Bang Bang” in a club, barely visible in the black and red lighting. The dark lighting and Aquaria’s dancing bring an interesting mystique to this otherwise lighthearted dance number.

[…] “Bang Bang” is one of the shortest songs on the album, but it uses every second to its advantage. The track opens with a banjo-like sound and follows with twangy guitar underneath 808s and midis. A mix between country, Madonna and EDM, listeners might feel like they’ve experienced the full range of music by the time the last note plays. Donna Missal delivers the vocals here, evoking an inimitable sound both old and retro on lyrics like, “They say I’m different, they ain’t misunderstood / Yeah, I’m an alien in Hollywood.” […]
