The Knife

The Knife share new videos

In 2014, the Knife announced that the shows they were playing in support of Shaking the Habitual would be their final live performances. Both the Knife and Karin Dreijer’s solo project, Fever Ray, have been silent ever since except the occasional DJ set. There were some signs of activity this morning, however, the group’s Facebook profile picture was updated, a new cover video followed, and they shared a minute-film video shortly after. Named “Mother of Knives Cooking Class,” the 60-second video shows the preparation of obscure kitchen ingredients, including a Fever Ray bird mask, while soundtracked by Shaking the Habitual track “Networking.” The cover video depicts a knife slicing cherry candies as muffled voices loop in the background. Watch them below.
