If you can watch this video without looking away, flinching, or gasping you're made of tougher stuff than us here at Noisey. London-based production duo We Are Shining first came to our attention thanks to last year's "Hey You" 12" released via XL Recordings' offshoot Young Turks (The xx, SBTRKT, FKA Twigs).
Their MO is groove rooted electronica—a blend of tribal beats, slapped palms and a heavy dose of soul. The pair's latest track, "Killing," is lifted from their forthcoming mixtape and features British singer Eliza Doolittle (last heard on Disclosure's smash "You & Me").
And the video? It's simple in concept, insane in practice and stars knife thrower John Taylor and blade dodging dancer Shannelle 'Tali' Fergus, who is basically the bravest girl around.
