Fever Ray is the new solo music project by Karin Dreijer Andersson, best known as one half of Swedish electronic outfit The Knife. Her debut self-titled album came out earlier this year and has been making some well-earned waves. Her sound features haunting pitched shifted vocals, accompanied by subtle electronics. Retro drum machines and synthesizers surround her voice in dark atmospherics. The lyrics of the songs tend to be sparse and abstract in nature, which fits the music well. An excellent album, full of subtleties that seep into you on repeated listens.
