Thus far, the Knife’s massive and intimidating new double album Shaking The Habitual has produced two videos, for “Full Of Fire” and “A Tooth For An Eye,” that serve and gender-play mini-manifestos. But that’s not the case with the duo’s new video for “A Cherry On Top,” a near-ambient nine-minute piece of creeping Lynchian dread. Instead, this one, from animator Martin Falck, bends the eye-bleeding pink and green graphics from the album’s butt-ugly cover art into hypnotic swirls. It’s just the same thing happening over and over; nothing changes. Those colors being what they are, you may actually hurt your vision if you stare at this one for too long. It’s below.
Shaking The Habitual is out now on Mute.
