Madcap Swedish duo talk about the making of Shaking The Habitual

The Knife have released a short film, The Interview, which tells the story behind their new album Shaking The Habitual.

We wanted to do something again but had to find a purpose. Music can be so meaningless. We had to find lust,” say the sibling pair in the film - watch it in full above.
