Fever Ray - Live At The Troxy

Musically speaking, Karin Dreijer’s Far Eastern proclivities often dominate this Fever Ray 2018 show, much as they did David Sylvian’s Japan recordings. Part Of Us is full of Oriental melodic tics, while Triangle Walks and the stuttering, intense Wanna Sip add Taiko drums. But Dreijer’s sinister, childlike voice – which thrives particularly well on When I Grow Up – is also consistently otherworldly. There are echoes of Bow Wow Wow on This Country, while To The Moon And Back emphasises the proudly feminine and non-binary nature of the show’s performers.
