The KnifeColouring of Pigeons

Ok so if you know me then you know I eff’s with Sweden’s unusual duo, The Knife. And I’ve been (somewhat) patiently waiting for anything new to drop and finally it’s here.

Off the soon to be released Darwin operatic soundtrack, Tomorrow, In A Year  – ‘Colouring Of  Pigeons’ is an 11 minute opera song  (The Knife style) and it is truly amazing. Karin’s vocals as usual are sublimely unique and she’s hitting notes that I never even imagined were possible for her – and she still manages to squeeze in  her traditional spooky like melody every now and then. As for Olof’s beats… Just peep for yourself. Look for the entire album to drop March 1.
