The Knife – ‘A Tooth For An Eye’.

The Knife - A Tooth For An Eye.
8 March 2013

It’s no secret that feminism is a mode of thinking that is extremely close to Swedish electronic duo The Knife‘s heart. So what better day to drop another single and video from their highly anticipated album Shaking the Habitual, out on their own Rabid record label, April 8, than International Women’s Day?

Another brilliantly primal call to arms, buttressed by incredible rhythms, ‘A Tooth For An Eye’ follows their provocatively deviant ‘Full of Fire’ video, directed by feminist director Marit Östberg. But rather than featuring a diverse array of women in every non-conformist guise they could think of, ‘A Tooth For An Eye’ complements the glitchy synth bounce with all sorts of bodies dancing led by a fierce young girl in braids.**
