The Knife Silent Shout on 2LP
The Knife was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden by sister/brother duo Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer. Having released five albums as The Knife (including their operatic collaboration with Mt Sims and Planningtorock) and multiple side projects, the duo have proven themselves to be truly unique and prolific artists working by their own rules.
Originally issued in 2006, Silent Shout is The Knife's third full-length album following 2003's Deep Cuts and last for seven years until returning in 2013 with Shaking the Habitual. The chilling 11-song set was created by the mysterious duo in relative isolation which is directly reflected in the idiosyncratic material. Featuring the four singles: "Silent Shout," "Marble House," "Like a Pen" and "We Share Our Mothers' Health."
"A much tighter, laser-guided record, Silent Shout finds the duo honing in on a specific mood, and at last, perfecting a signature sound...Along with recent outings from Mu and Cristian Vogel, Silent Shout achieves a forbidding cold-bloodedness by melding contemporary electronic sounds with a grotesque vocal palette. Call it "haunted house." - Mark Pytlik, Pitchfork
