The Knife recently released a single and music video for “A Tooth For An Eye,” off of upcoming album Shaking The Habitual. It feels like eons since we’ve heard a new release from the once separated, now reunited Swedish sibling duo of Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer. As many of you may know, Karin Dreijer went on to pursue her solo career as Fever Ray, leaving many of us wondering if The Knife was a thing of the past. “A Tooth for an Eye” takes us back to the familiar dark electro synth tones which we missed so dearly. There’s so much going on in this single that its hard to take it in with one listen. I’m loving of highs and lows in electro and live drums, the climatic synths, and mix and match percussion and beats. With the album release date lingering (4/4) right around the corner, I’m sure there are many others like me who cant wait to see what their new album will unfold.
Is it true?!?! Yes.
