This is some dark, harrowing, weird, twisted, regressive, beautiful music. Knife Wife take a peek into the darkness and void that is teenage-dom, and the stuff they come back with is scary, freaky, disturbing, and sublime. We’ve not stopped listening to their debut, Family Party. because it’s like a car crash, Rollerderby, or Faces Of Death: gross, yet we cannot look away. This is some primal, visceral stuff.
This is a journey you must undertake, and this is the first song on that journey, provided here with a fan video. Enjoy–and ignore–at your own peril….
Wanna hear how special this is? Here’s a live version of the song, from last summer. It’s like watching Throwing Muses in 1984.
