Band: USE KNIFE
Who: Belgian two-piece – Stef Heeren and Kwinten Mordijck, born out of the mutual love for analog and modular electronic machinery. Use Knife is the duo’s musical vehicle to explore and express hallucinatory freethinking visions to contemporary living.”
Track: TROPENTARN – the title track from the band’s debut EP, which is being released on 6 March
Score: When you know what Tropentarn actually means – a camouflage pattern used by the Bundeswehr in arid and semi-arid regions – and you hear the song’s doom and gloom lyrics you know something is rotten in the state of Use Knife who reflect the explosive times we all experience in today’s troubled world. The duo camouflaged their apocalyptic view to avoid you will run away screaming in an accessible, yet ominous synth-driven slow-mo pop tune, spiced with a hypnotic chorus, that gets under your skin slowly but surely. Ängstliche Träumerei! Götterdämmerung ist hinter der Ecke!
Here’s ‘the way the world ends’…
