The Knife
Since The Knife still has no individual thread, I guess it's high time we change it! For me, The Knife was my top music discovery of 2005 (started with the great single Pass This On overheard on BBC Radio 1's Blue Room). Now, with their recent album, Silent Shout, I'm not just an enthusiast but a true fan.

As you can read on their official site: http://www.theknife.net - The Knife is Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. They are based in Stockholm, Sweden and have made music together since 1999. So far, their discography contains four LPs:

2006 – ”Silent Shout”
2003 – ”Hannah med H Soundtrack”
2003 – “Deep Cuts”
2001 – “The Knife

Those of you who may not know the band will perhaps recognize Karin as the singer on the Royksopp single, What Else Is There.

Yes!!

I love The Knife. tifa, I also wonder why there aren't more comments. I am sure there are more fans on tfs; did you notice that Spacemiu's avatar is of Olof?

I adore Heartbeats as well and the entire Silent Shout album. And I mean, the entire album. To like every single song on an album is such a rare thing for me, so that's saying a lot about how much I love the band.

Actually, I am a little obsessed with them. Their music videos, their conceptual live light shows...and the music, of course! I first became interested in them when I read a review of them in some random indie music mag last year. The review drew a comparison between The Knife and David Lynch. That's when I knew I had to research them....

The Knife rocks!

When I first heard Heartbeats, I thought it was the worst cover I had ever heard. Until I found out it was the original. I laughed so hard.
