The Knife – Full Of Fire

I always say I find order in chaos, and this Knife song is an indication of what that phrase could be literally translated into in music. Chosen because I have seen The Knife this week and it has reminded me what an awesome tune it is and how striking it was to see it in a live environment. What you’re going to listen to here is 9 minutes of industrial strength techno beats that get more and more menancing, as landscapes surrounding twist and distort. All with Karen Dreijer-Andersson’s signature wail layering everything making it all the even more uncomfortable. I’d call this tribalism at its finest as it sounds so primitive yet so now at the same time, it’s an incantation for the post-modern condition, not to mention rapturous and terrifying in equal measure. I love The Knife and long may they continue to make music together.
