"Marble House" is the second single from The Knife's 2006 album Silent Shout. It was released in four different regions on four different labels. It features Swedish singer Jay-Jay Johanson. The music video was directed by Chris Hopewell. The melody of Marble House is markedly similar to the song Dark Eyes.[1]

Music video

Two music videos have been made for this song, both of which can be found on the deluxe edition of Silent Shout. One depicts an early 20th century or late 19th century family, presumably one in a British Colony in Asia. The second video depicts a day in the lives of a family of mice, who have built a fairly comfortable house behind a wall in a human house. It uses stop-motion animation.
