The Knife: "Full of Fire" Official Video - Film by Marit Östberg

"Full of Fire" by the Knife is edgy, pulse pounding and kind of un-nerving. The industrial synth sounds can rattle your psyche like a NIN / Trent Reznor music bed of nails and the vocal presentation feels detached and icy cool. Take a listen but be forewarned it is not for the faint of heart. The Full of Fire film by Marit Östberg is equally edgy, strange, sexual and kind of freaky. - Robb Donker

Today, The Knife unveil ”Full Of Fire” from their forthcoming album Shaking The Habitual and premier a short film by Marit Östberg.
Filmmaker and revolutionary visual artist, Marit Östberg is based in Stockholm and Berlin. Championing feminist fights throughout history, Marit is well known for her works focusing on images of queer bodies and sexualities. Her work has often been described as uncompromising:
Uncompromisingly current.
Uncompromisingly sexy.
Uncompromisingly political.
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.”
-Marit Östberg

Sometimes I get problems that are hard to solve
What’s your story
That’s my opinion
Questions and the answers can take very long
Here’s a story
What’s your opinion
Of all the guys
And the signori
Who will write
My story
Get the picture
They get glory
Who looks after
My story
All the guys
And the signori
Telling another
False story
Liberals giving me a nerve itch
Now living
And always moving
Not a vagina
It's an option
The c-ck
Had it coming
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Now living
And always moving
Now living
And always falling
Sometimes I get problems that are hard to solve
Here’s a story
That’s my opinion
Liberals giving me a nerve itch
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
When you’re full of fire
What’s the object
of your desire
Asking questions that are easy to reply
When you’re full of fire
What’s the object
of your desire
Let’s talk about gender baby
Let’s talk about you and me
