Added DiffLines:

* AuthorTract: ''Shaking the Habitual'' is largely inspired by the band's views on feminism, economics, and the environment. The packaging even has a satirical comic about the UN planning to end extreme wealth.

* JumpScare: ''Old Dreams Waiting To Be Realized'' largely consists of 19 minutes of extremely spooky ambient noise... except for one very loud spasm of electric noise halfway through. Not the sort of track you'd want to turn on while being home alone.

The Knife -- what you might get if CreatorDavidLynch's films could sing you to sleep before they sell your soul to the devil, in the nicest possible way.

The Knife - what you might get if David Lynch's films could sing you to sleep before they sell your soul to the devil, in the nicest possible way.

'''The Knife''' were an electronic brother-sister music duo from Sweden, comprised of Karin Dreijer-Andersson and her brother Olof Dreijer. Formed in 1999 and disbanded in 2014, they rose to public attention when [[CoveredUp Jose Gonzalez's cover]] of their song ''Heartbeats'' was used in a Sony Bravia TV commercial (the one with all the bouncy balls).

They were incredibly reclusive, often refusing to give interviews or make public appearances (they did not perform live shows until 2006) and the few promotional images of them usually show them wearing venetian plague-doctor masks, or dressed as monkeys.

The first two albums gained small acclaim but went largely unnoticed, although ''Deep Cuts'' was nominated for a Grammis[[note]]The Swedish version of the Grammy Awards[[/note]]. ''Silent Shout'', however, was a roaring success, nominated for 6 Grammis Awards and named as Pitchfork Media's album of the year, as well as Slant Magazine's 95th best album of the 2000s.

While they fall under the category of "electronic music" their sound is hard to describe in full detail. TheOtherWiki lists the aforementioned DavidLynch as an influence, as well as Aki Kaurismäki, ComicBook/BlackHole, DonnieDarko and VideoGame/{{Doom}} as just some of their influences, so that might give you an idea.

Oh, and for added fun, they're good friends with {{Robyn}}. They even produced the song "Who's That Girl?" from Robyn' self titled album.

* ReclusiveArtist: Zig-zagged. They tend to shy away from press attention, but they've stated multiple times that they're open to interviews, just not ones that try to pry into their personal lives. Karin appears to be more amiable to interviews when she was promoting Fever Ray.
