The Knife’s New Video “A Tooth For An Eye” Desconstructs Masculinity, NBD

Thank Christ The Knife are almost back with a new record. Their last, Silent Shout was totally genius, as was Karin Dreijer Andersson’s solo project Fever Ray, which resulted in one of the best and weirdest awards acceptance speeches ever.

For their latest video, the band gathered together a group of male dancers to “deconstruct 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.”

Also, the song is pretty great. Enjoy! [Youtube]
