'If we could choose not to do any photos at all, we would,’ says Karin Dreijer Andersson. 'But it's quite impossible. Because I don’t think it has anything to do with the music. So we use the photos now to show what our music looks like.'
'It’s very cold and dark and suggestive maybe,’ says Olof Dreijer of the duo’s new 'image'. 'We feel like that if we had been there with our plain faces, that would destroy the illusion of the music. So we tried to dress up as the music. Occult and dark but at the same time, funny.'
This is the world of The Knife: precise, particular, dark, occult, funny-peculiar, funny-ha-ha.'
