The Knife - Silent Shout

The Knife are a Swedish electronic music duo from Stockholm, formed in 1999. The group consists of siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, who together also run their own record company, Rabid Records. The group gained a large international following in response to their 2003 album Deep Cuts. The group and this specific album later received further attention when a cover of their song "Heartbeats", rearranged for acoustic guitar by José González, appeared in a Sony commercial. Subsequent songs have appeared on a number of television shows.

The duo's first tour took place in 2006, along with the release of their critically acclaimed album Silent Shout. They have won a number of Swedish Grammis, but refuse to attend awards ceremonies. They have appeared in public wearing Venetian masks. Andersson released a solo album under the name Fever Ray in 2009, while Dreijer released several EPs as Oni Ayhun in late 2009 and early 2010.

Way Out West being The Knife’s only festival in Sweden and with a performance like stage show did they got the audience to dance out during the night in Slottsskogen, Gothenburg. A little quirky, pretty weird, artistic but with a small hook that could get almost everyone to wiggle the big toe.

The majority of the performers at this year's festival is the males, something like The Knife pointed out during his concert.

There has been a lot of cock on this stage today, they said, referring to Håkan Hellström, Rodriguez and Local Natives who all played at the Flamingo stage earlier that day.

Todays tune "Silent Shout" is a really "brooding, bassy, dance-fuelled electronica", the tune is the first single and title track from the album Silent Shout. The song was released in 2006.
