Fever Ray - If I Had A Heart (video)
"This will never end 'cause I want more"
Remember The Knife? It was in 2006 that this Swedish duo took the world by storm with their third album "Silent Shout" and its spooky atmospheres that didn't sound like anything else at that time (hell, 3 years on and they still don't). To complete the unique ambience of their music, there were also jaw-dropping videos and shows with the most amazing visuals, as seen in "Silent Shout - An Audio Visual Experience". Well then, good news: even if they are not officially back, their female half, Karin Dreijer Andersson, has a new album coming out soon and judging by this first song and video, the creativity is bloody intact. Darker and scarier than ever, "If I Had A Heart" is a little cinematographic piece of art that slowly and patiently builds a fascinating universe, with an extremely creepy video directed by long-time The Knife collaborator Andreas Nilsson, that includes a wolf passing by, dead corpses, cold house interiors, a singer with a skull face paint and two little children lost and terrified, looking at something they can't understand.
