Fever Ray

March 18, 2009



One of my favorite shows all-time was The Knife at Webster Hall during CMJ 2006.  I couldn’t stop listening to their latest release, Silent Shout, and this would be their first ever US show (and only their 12th anywhere).  The heavy electro and groundbreaking visuals were mind-blowing.

The brother-sister duo from Sweden hasn’t returned to the US since and all had been quiet from their camp…until the female half, Karin Dreijar Andersson, emerged with a solo-project called Fever Ray.  Tracks have been surfacing on-line and a string of European dates has been announced.  Karin’s haunting vocals remain and the electro beats don’t stray too far from the sound of The Knife…a good thing.  Let’s hope Karin brings it full-circle and comes to NYC for CMJ in October 2009.  

Here’s a Fever Ray remix.  Thanks to Chris from GvB.
