Listening Post

After 8 years away, it’s no coincidence that Fever Ray is back just before Halloween

"Hey, remember me? I've been busy working like crazy"

Eight years on since releasing her self-titled debut album Fever Ray was never going to return with anything drab.

Karin Dreijer has reannounced herself with this new track ‘To The Moon And Back’ along with a disturbing video which starts with a figure walking into what looks like a shopping centre car park and unplugging Fever Ray from a cryogenically frozen state.

Next… well, next she gets discovered by some other ‘beings’ – gets force fed some cake at an alien tea party and then ends up being kidnapped.

Don’t expect it to be the last of this story.

Finally, let’s not forget this is what Fever Ray looked like last time around.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
