瑞典陰暗面 The Knife

來自瑞典的聲音大概都聽得足夠的多,或多或少都會有若干的印象與模式,ABBA、Roxette、Ace of Base、the Cardigans、Kent,甚至是瑞典獨立廠牌Labrador旗下的Club 8、Edson、the Rdaio Dept.、Acid House Kings...... 我並不打算要以片蓋全地硬將瑞典的音樂歸納為某一類型或某一種聲音,但整體感覺上瑞典的聲音是傾向於比較具情懷,比較溫暖甚至陽光的,身在香港的我們合上眼去想有關瑞典的就只會想到一張張笑臉來。 The Knife同樣來自瑞典,不包括零三年的電影原聲大碟Hannah med H在內,Silent Shout都已經是樂隊的第三張專輯了,但The Knife的名字開始被廣泛地認識都只是不久之前的事,那當然得要多謝José González的關照,José González被Sony選作新款電視BRAVIA的廣告主題曲的Heartbeats,原曲就是來自這隊瑞典二人Electro-Pop組合The Knife零三年推出的Deep Cuts專輯。 可能是無心插柳亦可能是乘勝追擊,當Heartbeats因為BRAVIA廣告而被廣泛流傳的同時,The Knife終於推出全新專輯Silent Shouts,但這一次無論由單曲與專輯封面、音樂錄影帶、甚至是音樂所營造的氣氛,都完全找不到我們所以為的瑞典笑臉來,取而代之的是一股濃得化不開的陰沈鬱結,由專輯開首點題曲Silent Shouts朦得彷彿與世隔絕一樣的鼓擊聲效開始,其實已經開宗名義將基調定立得很清楚,當然,如果你曾經看過Silent Shouts的音樂錄像,看到陰暗黑沉的燈光、電視雪花與跳格的效果,還有那個半人半怪的主角,大概你都可以想像到Silent Shouts專輯將要帶來的是一陣令你忐忑不安呼吸困難的壓迫感。 從訪問之中讀到The Knife兩位成員Olof Dreijer及Karin Dreijer Andersson對一些事情的觀點,他們並沒有因為Heartbeats被José González改編然後因為成為廣告主題曲而得到成效而感到特別高興,對於他們而言這只是其中一項為了維持他們自家的音樂廠牌Rabid Records的工作;他們的官方照片之中都是奇裝異服戴面具或套上奇怪化妝的,因為他們其實並不認為這些官方照片跟他們的音樂創作有任何關連,但為了要在這個架構上生存與發展,只好以一個比較具想像空間的方法去呈現The Knife的面貌。 The Knife是屬於陰暗面的,他們所流露的都是哀愁陰沉不可告人的一面,然而從另一個角度看,The Knife其實是真誠得可愛,實在那個沒有屬於自己的陰暗面?The Knife有、瑞典有、你與我其實都有,分別只在於你是否能夠接受,及是否看得清楚。 The Knife - Silent Shouts 參考網站: The Knife官方網站 - http://www.theknife.net/ Silent Shouts music video

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Many thanks!
