Spotlight on Fever Ray

January 17, 2010

I recently stumbled across the Swedish pop music of Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson, whose projects include Fever Ray and the The Knife.  Her melodies are haunting, her lyrics are smart, and the studio production is subtle and precise.  Pitchfork Media gushed about her last album, naming it one of the best of 2006.  Now it’s my turn to gush about her latest album, “Fever Ray.”  In particular, I love the music videos; each of them is a little mystery to unravel.  Here are three of my favorites:

“When I Grow Up” directed by Martin de Thurah

“If I Had a Heart” directed by Adreas Nilssons

“Seven” directed by Johan Renck
