Biography

Stockholm, Sweden (2008 – present)

Fever Ray is a Stockholm-based solo project of Karin Dreijer Andersson (7 Apr 1975 in Gothenburg, Sweden), which débuted with the single “If I Had A Heart” (15 Dec 2008), followed by the self-titled album “Fever Ray” (13 Jan 2009). The latest is track The Wolf, from Brian Reitzell & Alex Heffes’ “Red Riding Hood” soundtrack (Mar 2011, Appian Way).

Andersson is also half of act The Knife, with brother Olof Dreijer, and was lead singer / guitarist for a defunct group, Honey is Cool.

What would you do if one decade into your career you suddenly saw one of your songs turned into a worldwide hit, won six Grammis in your native Sweden and your latest release was declared album of the year by one of the world’s most influential music websites? If you’re Karin Dreijer Andersson, the answer is to take a couple of years off and return as a solo artist under a new name: Fever Ray.

In Andersson’s own words: “I had so many songs to record that I just had to make an album. I thought I was going to have a longer break but I guess it will never happen. I can’t stop working. My aim was to finish the album and, now that it’s done, I’m a bit restless (good that The Knife has an opera to write then). During the last years, I discovered that I like to sing too, so I hope that my newly found live band Fever Ray will make it to the stages next year. We are rehearsing and building something beautiful and brilliant.”
