The Knife has just dropped a first look at their latest project, a "political activist cabaret" produced in collaboration with art collective Ful. Titled Europa Europa, the touring show tackles Sweden and EU’s controversial immigration policies, which have made it harder than ever for asylum-seekers to find refuge in Europe.   

According to the video description, the track is intended to "praise all those hundreds of thousands of people who defy the cameras, the deadly waters, the barbed wire, the violence and the compact political resistance, and make it across the external and internal borders of Europe every year". 

The video also invites viewers to join in its "Political Macarena", a mass dance choreographed by Dom Dugliga. Political or not, it is a massive upgrade on the traditional macarena. 

Europa Europa is set to premiere on 1 July in Visby, Sweden, in the run-up to the Swedish elections. Watch the song, "För Alla Namn Vi Inte Får Använda", below.
