Fever Ray continues to evoke her unique brand of horror sensuality with her next era of music. ‘Kandy’ is the third single and comes with some of the bendiest synths I’ve heard in ages, which is something of a Fever Ray staple. Sonically, this sounds closer to her moody self-titled debut album than the dark rave orgy of ‘Plunge’. Listeners can definitely hear influences from both sides though as there’s a mix of electronic and hyper-realistic world drums used in the mix. Previous singles ‘Carbon Dioxide’ and ‘What They Call Us’ remind me more of The Knife’s style but considering just how unique Karin’s voice is, it is difficult to draw other conclusions. In a world of generic music, I appreciate Fever Ray’s uniqueness more with each release.
‘Kandy’ is taken from Fever Ray’s forthcoming album ‘Radical Romantics’ which is releasing on 10th March. You can pre-order the album on Bandcamp.
