The Knife was formed in Gothenburg Sweden by sister/brother duo Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer. Having released four albums as The Knife (including their operatic collaboration with Mt Sims and Planningtorock) and multiple side projects, the duo have proven themselves to be truly unique and prolific artists working by their own rules.
Shaking the Habitual comes to us veiled in secrecy with few words from the band attached to the teaser video revealed December 2012:
“We didn’t plan to make another album.
We wanted to do something again but had to find a purpose.
Music can be so meaningless.
We had to find lust. “
