Last Friday we attended the stage show of Swedish pop musician Karin Dreijer Andersson’s alter ego Fever Ray and are happy to report the sensory spectacle lived up to the hype. Shrouded in smoke and surrounded by multi-colored lasers, Andersson emerged in a giant yeti-like costume as her four-piece band jammed on various percussive instruments, including giant bongos. They performed every song on the Fever Ray’s album plus two cover songs. Omgblog reader Parker summed it up best: “she is a shamanic goddess power being from another planet.”
