New Music // Fever Ray – The Wolf

6 May

Most musicians will go their entire careers not creating an album as good as The Knife’s Silent Shout, but for Karin Dreijer Andersson, that was only the beginning. Stepping out on her own while her brother, the other half of The Knife, went off to score an opera, Karin created the solo project Fever Ray and, once again, created one of the best electronic albums in recent years. Much like Björk before her, Karin is making her mark as a truly gifted artist who’s innovative music will become touchstones for many musicians to come.

At the height of her Fever Ray project she, surprisingly, added a completely new track to the film Red Riding called The Wolf. Dark, ominous, both modern and ancient, terrifying and beautiful. This is Karin at her best.
