Flower with Knife isn’t just their best record yet but by any standard a fucking sensational one, leaving your reviewer at least slightly in awe as well in need of amending this review’s first line: Some things never change except for the better and thank fucking god for that.
The deranged love child of Debbie Harry and Freddie Murcury set to the melodies of Goldfrapp.
Lintern's voice, when not being dramatic, forceful, full of portent, hits these celestial interludes. Not sweet exactly - bit too spooked for that - but lilting. hypnotizing. Her presence truly is alluring, dangerous, charming. Coquettishness edged with menace. Star of the night, there can be no doubt about that.
KZME Radio review live performance in Portland, Oregon
If that didn't make you sit up and listen, I don't know what will.
Ruth Barnes, Amazing Radio
This type of electronica is providing more lyrical and stylistic risk taking which Das Fluff and others such as The Knife and Gary Numan are willing to take.
Adding punk edge to the surging beats of Numan and Depeche Mode inspired electro, with a bit of Throbbing Gristle chucked in for good measure.
A great collection of strong songs, skillfully crafted, well-recorded and performed. On Meditation and Violence, we have evidence of an artist who has the confidence to pursue her vision, which is never a bad thing. If you like music with darker depths, that seeks to shine a light on the spirit of the age whilst giving you something to hum along to, this is the album for you. Highly recommended.
A dark confessional about cyber-stalking from debut album 'Would You Die For Me', a compelling electro-pop rollercoaster featuring formidable front-woman Dawn Lintern.
