Watch the Video for The Knife's "A Cherry on Top"
- Words: Patric Fallon
It's admittedly a bit strange that the latest music video to arrive from The Knife's masterful Shaking the Habitual album is for the beatless, nearly nine-minute dirge "A Cherry on Top," but then again, pretty much everything about the Swedish duo and its new LP could be called strange—this piece is no exception. What more or less amounts to looking at a psychedelic screensaver, The Knife's new clip features a twisting geometric pattern lifted from the new album's visually shocking artwork, and that's about it. Maybe "music video" is too strong of a term for this clip; let's call it a visualizer for one of Shaking the Habitual's numerous standout tracks.
