The Knife drop strange ‘Shaking the Habitual’ teaser video

Do you like shoes, gaudy and trashy outfits, and ambient synth textures? Well, then you’ll dig The Knife’s teaser video for their forthcoming “Shaking the Habitual” LP, due out April 2013. There’s a very David Lynchian vibe to the video—women in trouble and violence around the corner. If the two ladies in the video are in fact The Knife (brother and sister Dreijer), then one of those figures would be Olaf in drag.

“Shaking the Habitual” will be The Knife’s first proper album since 2006’s masterful “Silent Shouts.” Hopefully they devise an equally brilliant multimedia stage performance for the accompanying tour.
