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.
