New Music: The Knife- Full Of Fire + Music Video
This new ninety minute triple LP coming from Sweden's coolest electronic couple The Knife is going to be fucking awesome. To lead with a single this good only proves the point that the duo's new LP will probably one of the best of the year. The hard driving Full of Fire is a techno monster full of industrial strength beats and pulsating synths that wouldn't be out of place on an old Nitzer Ebb album.
The music video for the track was directed by Marit Osberg who is a German feminist porn movie director. The video follows 16 people over the length of 10 minutes and features an occupy protest, a woman taking a pee in the middle of the street and a group of S&M participants. There used to be a goth club in downtown Toronto called The Sanctuary-something tells me this music and the accompanying video would have been very popular there. Watch below:
The new album is titled Shaking The Habitual and will be released on April 9th via Rabid/Brille/Mute Records.
For fans of Nitzer Ebb, Aphex Twin, Fever Ray.
