074/100 - "Silent Shout" by The Knife
The Knife are like Marmite: you either love them or hate them. Personally, I love them.
With "Silent Shout", their fourth album, the Swedish siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer have distilled their powerfully evocative expression and created something wonderfully unique. Their electronic soundscapes and otherworldly vocals make for an engaging experience. Dreijer Andersson's vocals, in particular, are as dissonant as they are delightful, they work exceptionally well as a counterpart to the duo's vibrant, engaging electronica.
"Silent Shout" is a shot of adrenaline that you take aurally, a rather addictive pick me up for a very grey day.
Why only 100 words?
