Though I’m still rather dejected over the retirement of Swedish experimental electro-pop collective The Knife, I’ve been elated for the past few months over the return of Karin Dreijer Andersson’s other project, Fever Ray, who’d been silent for well over eight years before the sudden release of her sophomore album Plunge. Fever Ray’s strange and esoteric, dark and edgy electropop, much rooted in the macabre and gothic, is right up my alley, and I can’t get enough of Andersson’s new music. Today, Fever Ray shares a music video for Plunge track Wanna Sip, giving us some sinister and eerie visuals to go along with the icy droning, glitchy needling song. Fever Ray also announced a North American tour this week, which concludes in Oakland on May 26th at the Fox Theater. You can count on my presence at that show. It’s going to be a magnificent experience, no doubt. I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my CD copy of Plunge next month, too. You can grab your own, here.
