“We had a promise made, we were in love”
The Knife return with something very special. The first cut from their new ‘Deep Cuts longplayer.
‘Heartbeats’ is a genius tune. A perfect example of why Karin and Olof Dreijer have swiftly become one of Sweden’s hottest acts. Emotive songwriting married with forward thinking production, ‘Heartbeats’ is synth powered pop of the highest order. Rex The Dog remix is a contender for mix of the year as this Kompakt recording artist grabs the track by the scruff of the neck and wrestles it onto the dancefloor. Superb stuff. Completing the package The Knife deliver their own fresh techno interpretation while on the vinyl Style Of Eye freaks things out with extra drums and effects. It’s all very good.
The Knife began the year with their eponymous debut album that raised appreciative eyebrows across the board. Now Karin and Olof present their next instalment of “emotional electronic punk pop”. An utterly unique proposition. Their new album ‘Deep Cuts’ is released at the end of September. Get ready.
Single release on Rabid Records- 6th September 2004
