Inimitable Swedish act the Knife have released a video which explains their approach to the Opera project, Tomorrow, In A Year.
As always, it’s incredibly weird, but it doesn’t quite match the brilliance of Karin Dreijer Andersson’s acceptance speech at the recent P3 awards.
The opera project, a collaboration with Mt.Sims and Planningtorock, is adventurous even by The Knife’s standards, and follows on from a landmark year for the duo’s female singer Karin Dreijer Andersson, whose solo album under the Fever Ray moniker adorned many a “best of 2009″ list.
Meanwhile Karin has announced some more live Fever Ray dates, including a London show on September 8.
Fever Ray’s forthcoming live dates are as follows:
16 April – Coachella, Indio CA
8th Sep – O2 Academy Brixton, London
9th Sep – La Cigale, Paris
11-13 Sep – Bestival, Isle of Wight
