Today, the Knife release Shaking The Habitual, their dark and overwhelming new double album. And now they’ve teamed with director Marit Östberg, who also helmed their “Full Of Fire” video, to make a 13-minute short film about the album. In the video, the two siblings in the group take turns talking about the album, its themes, and the ideas underpinning it in prewritten and intricately plotted-out fashion, while Östberg flashes creepy non-sequitur images onscreen. And if you’ve yet to take on the vast album, its music plays constantly in the video, offering a relatively digestible starting point. Watch it below.

Shaking The Habitual is out now on Mute.
