The Knife was the best thing to come out of Sweden since ABBA. Under that name, brother and sister Olof and Karin Dreijer Andersson made minimalist synth-pop that was simultaneously sweet and unsettling. ‘Deep Cuts’ (2003) and ‘Silent Shout’ (2006) were inventive albums that still have a following today. In 2009, Karin created the Fever Ray side project where she ventured further into the musical shadows. It became her main activity following the dissolution of The Knife. Olof got involved with ‘Radical Romantics’ (2023), the first album in five years, producing four of the ten songs. Notable guests include Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, renowned for Nine Inch Nails and their film and TV series soundtrack work. Fever Ray’s live show is quite an experience. Dreijer doesn’t just give a concert, she presents an entire world.
