Editors’ Notes On Fever Ray’s studio albums, much of the focus for principal performer Karin Dreijer (one half of Swedish sibling electronic duo The Knife) lay squarely on the otherworldly production: eerie, futuristic, more than a little bit goth. Onstage, Fever Ray and their collaborators are as bewitching as ever, but here, Dreijer's charismatic persona comes to the fore. Recorded at a 2018 show at London’s Troxy theater, the set tilts toward songs from the previous year’s Plunge, an album whose themes (desire, radicalism, and smashing societal norms) yield particularly impassioned performances, especially on the seething “This Country.” But six songs from Fever Ray’s self-titled 2009 debut also make the cut—with chestnuts like “When I Grow Up” and “Triangle Walks” given a percussive, downright funky spin—and the feverish response from the 3000-strong crowd is truly something to behold.
