SOTD: The Knife – Heartbeats

The version of Heartbeats most people are familiar with is the lovely, but horrendously overplayed José González version, which went viral on Youtube six years ago. But it’s The Knife‘s original electronic masterpiece is the one find myself coming back to, and cannot ever seem to get bored of. Maybe it’s Karin Dreijer Andersson’s obscure and highly recognisable vocals, or the futuristic neon synths, or the electronic pulsating steel drums. There is something so fantastically bizarre about The Knife, an air of mystery that few bands have been able to encapsulate so effortlessly into their sound.
