‘Heartbeats’ and its tale of instantaneous, fervent love became one of the most celebrated electro-pop songs of the 2000s. Pitchfork included it at #15 on their list of The Decade’s Best Recordings saying, “each version of ‘Heartbeats’ is a miracle in its own right, highlighting a different aspect of the same incredible, life-affirming experience.” The Knife sought to imbue ‘Deep Cuts’ with allusions to their socialist political ideals via the democratization of art. The duo conceived calypso-tinged electronic pop and used it to rail against ingrained structural entities such as the police state, toxic masculinity and domestic abuse. It was a spoonful of auditory sugar to help offset the bitterness of a dark reality. ‘Deep Cuts’ offered a chance for people to dance while confronting a troubled world.
