The return of the king of Swedes.

The Knife – after 7 years have broken their silent shout with a track called ‘Full Of Fire’, accompanied by what I can only describe as a self-indulgent, politically charged 10 minute hyperbole music video – which is being flung around the internet as a ‘short film’.

I don’t get it.  So here’s an explanation, a synopsis from Örstberg*…

“The film ‘Full Of Fire’ started to grow as an embryo in the song´s lines ‘Who looks after my story’. Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human´s lives, desires and conditions? The film ‘Full Of Fire’ consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else.”

I still don’t get it.

Take a look and try to crack the un crackable.

Their music videos were second to none.

Full Of Fire struggles to make it in the top ten.

A good thing has come to an end.

But not to worry, we still have the sounds of Justin Bieber.
