The Knife, ‘A Tooth for an Eye’ – New Video

Swedish brother-sister duo the Knife make their long-awaited comeback with the forthcoming ‘Shaking the Habitual,’ and they’ve just unveiled a video for the album’s opening track, ‘A Tooth for an Eye.’

In a recent statement, siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer explained the meaning behind the clip. “’A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership,” they wrote. “Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; there is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring, ‘I’m telling you stories, trust me.’ There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.”

‘Shaking the Habitual’ is set to drop on April 9 via Rabid Records. Click here for details on how to pre-order the disc.
