On her second album as Fever Ray, Karin Dreijer is more conflicted, more manic—and more in love, too. Fever Ray’s music and character have settled in with a deep familiarity in ways that the Knife’s constantly shape-shifting identity — with its stylistic detours, its costume changes, its forays into opera and Charles Darwin and queer theory — has not. The Knife keep you on your toes, but Fever Ray has always felt like a port in a storm. The Knife’s Karin Dreijer released her debut solo project in 2009 under the name Fever Ray. Eight years later, the Swedish singer returns with her sophomore album Plunge, featuring her electro pop single To the Moon and Back. Plunge was mostly recorded in Dreijer’s Stockholm studio with producers Paula Temple, Deena Abdelwahed, NÍDIA, Tami T, Peder Mannerfelt, and Johannes Berglund.
