I’m so, so, so excited that The Knife are back together and doing their thing yet again. It’s been seven years (seven years!) since ‘Silent Shout’ was released and rocked my world, way too long to go without a new album. Sure the Fever Ray stuff has been nice in the interim, and double awesome bonus points for their song “If I Had A Heart” appearing as both the credit sequence music for The History Channel’s new show Vikings and appearing in a sequence on The Following the same week, but Fever Ray just isn’t the same as The Knife. I love those weird Scandinavian vocals layered over tropical beats, and they were doing this stuff years before it became cool for everyone else to do it. There’s a new album coming out in April and I could not be more excited to see what else they have in store for us.
