New Fever Ray0
Mercy Street- September 6th
One half of the Knife and now VERY credible solo artist, Karin Dreijer Andersson aka Fever Ray is back with new single 'Mercy Street'.
A cover of the Peter Gabriel song, Karin describes 'Mercy Street' as "an interpretation. We made it more intense and faster to fit our eccentric percussionists and energetic live musicians. It is a monotone track but we worked with the dynamics trying to make it sparkle. I listened to it a lot when I was around 15, and it still moves me. It made me start reading Anne Sexton too."
