The Knife – Heartbeats

Many of you might have heard Jose Gonzalez’s version of this song, which was featured in a Sony commercial. However, this version by Swedish electropop duo The Knife is the original. It was recorded and released in 2003 and put this group on the map in regards to the indie/electropop scene. They have received a number of Swedish “Grammys” but refuse to go to awards ceremonies, and in their few public appearances, they were wearing Venetian masks.

I liked this band until I read that. Now I’m not so sure about them….

This is actually a pretty rad mashup with Kanye!
