The Knife

I absolutely LOVE The Knife. They are an amazing duo from Sweden that write amazing pop-electronica. Heartbeats is one of my all-time favourite songs. If you haven’t heard of The Knife before, you probably know the cover Jose Gonzalez did of this song, which was used in some ad that had bouncing balls in it!:…
