THE KNIFE  
Siblings KARIN DREIJER ANDERSSON  
And OLOF DREIJER.
 
The music that the knife creates is art in the form of sound. To me there music shows raw emotion and feeling formed by a strange mix of genres instruments and many, many synths.When you listen to their music it instantly conjures up the question who is these people? What inspires them to create such diverse and intricate music that means, and shows so many different inspirations yet creates an entirely new and original sound?
 
There is one word that comes to mind when I think of the knife 
 mystery
 
One of the knifes distinguishing characteristics is their unwillingness to cooperate with the media or the mainstream music scene. The group rarely makes public appearances, most of their promotional photos feature the members wearing masks, usually Venetian masks and until recently, they outrightly refuse to perform live concerts.
This band is truly unique   and awe inspiring

Very inspiring band, for sure. Have you listen to Karins solo project Fever Ray? You should have. The live show is something extra. 5th December, The Forum, London.
