The Knife, ‘A Cherry on Top’ – New Video
Sometimes, you just need a visual, accompanied by sound, to mess with your mind, and that’s exactly what Swedish brother-sister electro duo the Knife serve up with their video for ‘A Cherry on Top.’ It’s 8:45 in length, and in that time, not much happens, except for some digitally manipulated gray images, which are juxtaposed against a hot pink screen.
We’re not advocating the ingestion of illicit substances, but that’s probably necessary to fully appreciate and enhance this video and “get” what’s going on — or to come up with your own interpretation.
Or you can watch it while totally sober, and it’ll create the illusion that you’ve taken an illicit substance. It certainly mimics that state of consciousness. If you have the constitution and mental patience to sit through it all, more power to you!
