Karin and Olof Dreijer, AKA Swedish dance pioneers The Knife have had one hell of a career. The band are distinctly debauched, danceable and utterly destructive – they’re utterly unique and quite brilliant.
Sadly, though unless you’ve seen the band and their own particular brand of theatrical neurosis already you won’t see them again, as they called it quits in 2014.
Until now. The band have released the brilliant footage from their final ever show in New York. The film, brilliantly titled ‘Shaking The Habitual; Live At Terminal 5’, it’s 1 hour and 20 minutes of reasons why we miss The Knife.
We needn’t despair too much because not only is the film available to view below, but the band also promised new work to commemorate the tour. But while we wait for that update, it’s best to sit back and enjoy the theatricality of The Knife live.
