Karin Dreijer Andersson has been part of the music landscape for years and reinvents herself anew with every project. Together with her brother Olof Dreijer she takes the stage as The Knife; she contributed vocals to Röyksopp’s über-hit “What Else Is There”; and there’s Fever Ray, her solo project. The Swedish musician has always been comfortably uncomfortable, lyrically as much as visually (simply take a look at her disturbing videos). Fever Ray’s eponymous debut album hit the shelves eight years ago. With “Plunge”, she digitally released her sophomore album in October 2017, which contains a little bit of everything – and, at the same time, nothing – she’s done before. “Plunge” is much colder, less accessible and even more disturbing, a perfect fit for the current global political climate. We wouldn’t want it any other way! There’s too much shallow music and replaceable lyrics out there anyway.
