The Knife

– A TOOTH FOR AN EYE VIDEO

March 8th, 2013

Directed by: Roxy Farhat and Kakan Hermansson

Today, The Knife unveil A Tooth For An Eye from their forthcoming album Shaking The Habitual and premiere their video directed by Roxy Farhat and Kakan Hermansson.

“A Tooth For An Eye” deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership, Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior?

 In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; there is no prestige in their performance.

The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me” (a quote borrowed from Jeanette Winterson’s novel The Passion).

 There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.

Watch the film on theknife.net

The track ‘Tooth For An Eye’ is available to download next week on Tuesday March 12th, 2013, Shaking the Habitual will be available on April 9th, 2013.

A TOOTH FOR AN EYE SONG LYRICS:

Under the sun

Look what we have got

And those who haven’t

Bad luck

 

We’ve been running ’round

Pushing the shopping cart

January twothousandtwelve

Even in the suburbs of Rome

 

A brick in a castle

A camp for those on the run

Dance as weapons

Release my

 

Eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you

Some other kid is sucking on my thumb

Eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you

Another kid needs to suck on my thumb

 

Under the sun

Picking piles of flowers for the flowers’ pot

It’s all that I’ve got

 

On my doorstep

A screaming hand

I’m telling you stories

Trust me

 

Rewrite history

To suit our needs

Open my country

A tooth for an

 

Eye eyes eyes eyes tell me you

Some other kid is sucking on my thumb

Eyes eyes eyes eyes tell me you

Another kid needs to suck on my thumb

 

Border’s lies

The idea of what’s mine

A strange desire

Drawing lines with a ruler

Bring the fuel to the fire
