Boomkat Product Review:
The debut album from everyone's favourite Swedish siblings, 'The Knife' was the eponymous first peek into their charming electro world - now getting a full-fat re-release to capitalise on the twin vestiges of bouncy balls and the superlative 'Silent Shout' LP. Far more innocent and bright-eyed than their later work became, The Knife nonetheless sound like The Knife - with songs like 'Neon', 'Lasagne' and 'N.Y. Hotel' combining a bouncing electro backing with a foreground of vocals that can't help but attract Bjork comparisons. Always managing to draw a real warmth from what could be a clinical collection of elements, Karin and Olof Deijer pepper their tracks with digital flourishes that are both perfectly muted and loudly ornate - before topping the likes of 'I Take Time' with heart-wrenching vocals and bursts of axe-wielding guitar that keep you fully engaged. Electro noir, intelligent pop, neon digitalis - whatever genre tag you choose to throw at The Knife doesn't really do them justice, and with them now garnering the kind of praise they deserve (i.e. Not just Pitchfork...) this eponymous debut will finally get an appreciative audience. Cutting edge!
