Hypnotic tunes, a beautiful other-worldly voice and dark, sometimes disturbing, visuals. Fever Ray are by far the most inventive thing happening in music at the moment.
Karin Dreijer Andersson is the genius behind Fever Ray. She’s also half of the mind-bendingly brilliant Swedish electronic band The Knife, formed with her brother Olof. But with Fever Ray, Karin is really throwing her unique brand of weird at the world.
The Knife barely ever spoke to the media but as Fever Ray, Karin is everywhere, even giving away albums in The Guardian. She’s the queen of strange, a Bowie for the 2000s and you should all be listening to her right now! Take a look at FeverRay.com to check out all the wonderful videos.
By the way, some of you may recognise her distinctive vocals from the Röyksopp track What Else Is There? which is one of my favourite songs from last year.
