The Knife

If we did ever have a thread for them, it's now locked in the archive. We'll FINALLY have a new song from them next week, Full of Fire, so I figured a thread was deserved.

As a catchup, The Knife are a Swedish electronic music duo from Gothenburg, formed in 1999. The group consists of siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, who together also run their own record company, Rabid Records. The group gained a large international following in response to their 2003 album Deep Cuts. The group and this specific album later received further attention when a cover of their song "Heartbeats", rearranged for acoustic guitar by José González, appeared in a Sony commercial. Subsequent songs have appeared on a number of television shows.

The duo's first tour took place in 2006, along with the release of their critically acclaimed album Silent Shout (Pitchfork's 2006 album of the year). They have won a number of Swedish Grammis, but refuse to attend awards ceremonies. They have appeared in public wearing Venetian masks. Andersson released a solo album under the name Fever Ray in 2009, while her brother released several EPs as Oni Ayhun in late 2009 and early 2010. Andersson also contributed vocals to three popular Röyksopp songs. This will be their first album together as The Knife since 2006.

A few of their popular songs:

The Knife - Silent Shout - YouTube

The Knife - Heartbeats ( OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO W/ SOUND ) - YouTube

The Knife - Marble House - YouTube

Nothing's changed; I still love you, only slightly less than I used to.
