9/10 Brett Staff review, 11 February 2009
Silent Shout by The Knife is probably my favourite LP of the last few years so some sort of re-emergance is a welcome thing indeed. Apparently they're working on some sort of opera which should fit the theatricality of their stuff pretty perfectly but in the meantime we've got Fever Ray, Karin Dreijer Andersson's solo projecty thing. 'If I Had a Heart' is a typically atypical lead-off single for an album, being a dirgey creeper with a hypnotic, metallic chill of a heartbeat. Strangely the vocal interplay of The Knife is replicated quite faithfully with the cleaner vocals contrasted with the deeper, more highly effected ones though presumably this time it's solely the lady herself doing the work. It's all well sinister and for some reason it's reminding me of that Doctor Who episode with the scary statue things that move around when you're not looking.. Maybe transpose those nasty monsters to the deserted nighttime garden of a mazey stately home and you've got some sort of approximation of the atmosphere I'm feeling. Fuck Buttons drop in to contribute a remix for the flip, pounding away with dulled beats while the a small snippet of the original track swirls around itself endlessly before making me contradict myself by ending very abruptly. A high quality 7", with the album to follow..
