The Knife - Silent Shout

This one is quite special. Like most of the best music in recent times, it's difficult to describe it, as it sounds like something we've never heard of before. Imagine someone creating music in his room and sharing all his secrets to us - a bit like Khonnor did last year with Handwriting. Now imagine that someone has a twisted mind, multiple personalities, sinister thoughts, lives in the coldest place in the world, has a sister with a ghostly voice and likes using techno keyboards. And, with a brilliant imagination, manages to create perfect pop music despite all these contradictions.
The Knife are a mysterious duo coming from Sweden that always appear wearing masks. Their concept totally fits its music, full of those rare moments that remind us the most special things can be found in the strangest places with the most creepier atmospheres. File under: Cold, dark and strange yet hauntingly beautiful.
