WATCH: The Knife ‘Raging Lung’ (Live)
Swedish siblings Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson, THE KNIFE have been wowing live audiences with their latest album ‘Shaking The Habitual’.
The duo have released a live video filmed during their headline show in Stockholm earlier this year for the track ‘Raging Lung’. For those who are curious to see how one can push the limitations from the conventional perspective of music then watch! THE KNIFE have been redefining everything and have erased the border between normal and strange. An example of this is shown in their live video.
The self-directed (Albeit, under The Knife‘s ever-changing art collective Sorkklubben’s name) live video is definitely more of a performance art piece then an ordinary gig. The duo is joined on stage by a cast of dancing, twirling and whirling characters dressed in masks and cloaks. Though its interesting to watch, I longed to be sucked through the computer screen and view it all in the flesh (fingers crossed a tour down under is one the cards!)
The Knife released a short film called ‘The Interview’ which gives them a chance to talk more in depth about the thought processes and reasoning behind the album ‘Shaking The Habitual’
