Here The Knife brilliantly take the idea of a ‘slow love ballad’ and zap it into something new. It’s the sound of robots making sweet love on a conveyor belt to the junkyard where they’re due to be decapitated and melted down into Bacofoil suits for Kylie’s new tour. As Karin Knife’s pipes meld themselves around someone called Jay Jay Johanson’s vibrato, this slice of tragi-techno is so electronically passionate it’ll make you want to hug your microwave (or any household electrical appliance) before you go to bed at night.
