The Knife is one of those musical duos that never gets old. The duo is Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson. They are based in Stockholm, Sweden and have made music together since 1999. The most interesting part about The Knife is that their sound varies appreciably. On one hand you have fun, relaxing tracks and on the other you have deep, dark and mysteriously strange. I don’t plan on posting those tracks for the sake of maintaining this as a ‘Songs for Singing’ post.
The first track up is ‘Heartbeats’ followed by three others. For clarification, ‘Heartbeats’ was written by The Knife then later covered by fellow Swede José Gonzales. The Knife was at first concerned about letting José cover the song, but changed their minds upon the realization that the extra exposure could bring positivity to the label in the form of funding.
