Fevery Ray - Wanna Sip

Fever Ray is definitely one of my favorite

contemporary artists, and someone who has released some of the most interesting, genre-bending music in the last decade (at least in my opinion). I had previously heard the band name The Knife, and knew they were an electronic band, but I had never really checked them out. My friend Anthony sat me down one night, and explained to me that Karin Dreijer of that band had embarked on a solo career under the moniker Fever Ray, and proceeded to show me a live show that was mind-blowing, and I've remained a fan ever since. In 2009, Dreijer released the first Fever Ray album, a self-titled release, which is absolutely awesome, but my introduction was through their sophomore album, Plunge, which didn't come out until 8 years later in 2017. It's an amazing album, a combination of electronic, hip-hop, and pop elements, ranging from super beautiful, to catchy, to incredible dark or dissonant. This song is the opening track, and is a great place to start; it's got such a great groove, and weird synth elements, and Dreijer's signature vocal style, which is the perfect addition to the rest of the musical circus going on around it.
