The Knife return after seven years with a stunning new video

Posted by James Cartwright,

It’s been seven years since The Knife produced an album, 2006’s Silent Shout, and we’ve been waiting patiently for them to return. Finally they’re back. Famed for stunningly visceral live shows and collaborations with groundbreaking visual artists and directors, it’s fair to say that Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson front one of the most visually exciting bands out there today and, as you’d expect from a pairing of such considered creative output, the promo for their latest single, directed by Roxy Farhat and Kakan Hermansson, is typically magnificent. Subverting social stereotypes, mad choreography and an unlikely lead role all come together for an excellent watch, and obviously it sounds brilliant too.
