The Knife : Full Of Fire


There’s been a lot of hype directed at avant-electronic duo The Knife these past few days; firstly their new single “Full Of Fire” leaked online – albeit in the form of a frustrating preview stream that could only be listened to in bite-size segments – then the accompanying video (below) appeared, only to disappear again just as quickly. Now we know that the Swedish siblings’ fourth LP proper (the follow-up to 2006’s beloved Silent Shout) Shaking The Habitual will be an almost 100-minute long double disc set, and – lo and behold – the video has resurfaced. Billed as “a short film by Marit Ostberg” (and at just shy of ten minutes, that’s a fair description), it’s decidedly NSFW imagery is a perfect fit for the track’s brutal, twisted techno, but be warned: it’s not for the squeamish or easily offended. You can download the song now; Shaking The Habitual is out April 8 via Rabid/ Brille/ Mute.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
