Gekommen um zu bleiben

Erst war es weg, nun ist es wieder da: Das Video zum ersten neuen Stück aus "Shaking The Habitual", dem kommenden Album von The Knife. Regie führte die in Berlin lebende Schwedin Marit Östberg, bekannt vor allem durch ihren Beitrag zum 13teiligen Pornozyklus "Dirty Diaries", der 2009 veröffentlicht wurde und für den Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson aka. Fever Ray auch schon die Musik beisteuerte. Das offizielle Statement zum jetzt schon kontrovers diskutierten Clip lautet:

"The film 'Full of Fire' started to grow as an embryo in the song's lines 'Who looks after my story'. Who takes care of our stories when the big history, written by straight rich white men, erase the complexity of human's lives, desires and conditions? The film 'Full of Fire' consists of a network of fates, fears, cravings, longings, losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other. Our lives are intertwined and our eyes on each other, our sounds and smells, mean something. Our actions create reality, we create each other. We are never faceless, not even in the most grey anonymous streets of the city. We will never stop being responsible, being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else."
