Fever Ray is the solo project of Karin Dreijer Andersson, who is one half of the Swedish electro act The Knife (the other half is her brother Olof Dreijer).  On 9/7/2010 Fever Ray released a 7″ cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street” on Mute in the US and Canada.

As The Knife, Karin and her bro rarely make public appearances, and when they do they usually show up in makeup or masks.  As Fever Ray, Karin follows the undercover tradition.  In the disturbingly cool pics below it seems that Fever Ray continues her homage to Mr. Gabriel’s “Shock the Monkey” days…
