the knife

the knife are a stockholm based brother/sister duo of Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. Wacky yet dark at the same time, their mix of electro based music have been all the buzz for the past few months.

extremely camera shy and private, the knife separate themselves by also being canny entrepreneurs and controlling creatives. setting up separate distribution deals around the world AFTER they've recorded their albums, the knife have the ability to record with no pressure from any label. they also have yet to tour since they can't think of any way to make their performances interesting for the audience.

i picked up their 3rd album silent shout and have been focusing on a two tracks in particular every chance i can get.

the knife - silent shout
the knife - heartbeats (rex the dog remix)

while you're at it, check out the cool creepy video of the title track which i can't stop listening to.
