Fever Ray

I saw Fever Ray deliver an amazing performance this weekend in Chicago at the Metro. I really enjoyed how the hand made costumes and technology intersected to give us, the viewer, this other worldly feeling, which is what I believe they were trying to achieve. There was only a short while that Swedish electronic artist Karin Dreijer Andersson (who is also half of the band The Knife) took off her Bison headdress but her remarkable costume, along with all the others in collaboration with all the lasers and smoke was a really interesting spectacle of the mind. Its nice when technology supports artistry like singing and performance, and doesn't hinder it or become the most significant part.
