RIYL: The Knife, Zola Jesus, Austra
Label: Rabid Records
8 years of a hiatus since her brilliant eponymous album, Fever Ray is back with an already critically acclaimed record, Plunge. After listening to the three songs released from the album, I can only say that she is brilliantly riding the line between normality and the grotesque. I was trying to create a metaphor in my mind, but all I could come up with is “the soundtrack of a serial killer just before they become a serial killer”. This album is partially schizophrenic, partially hideous, a twinge of euphoria but completely intoxicating. It comes as a deluxe 2xLP and a hefty price tag, but well worth snagging because Plunge could well become the album of the year in 2018. Enjoy.
The Knife‚Äôs Karin Dreijer released her debut solo project in 2009 under the name Fever Ray. Eight years later, the Swedish singer returns with her sophomore album Plunge, featuring her electro pop single To the Moon and Back. Plunge was mostly recorded in Dreijer‚Äôs Stockholm studio with producers Paula Temple, Deena Abdelwahed, N√ćDIA, Tami T, Peder Mannerfelt, and Johannes Berglund.
