Her first single from the forthcoming self titled debut is “If I Had a Heart” – and it’s certainly a lot more downbeat than anything from The Wizard of Oz.
The video is dark, and creepy, and beautifully composed, and perfectly compliments Karin’s eerie vocals. This might be the best low-light footage I’ve ever seen in a music video – my compliments go to Andreas Nilsson for directing.
I am really excited for this album, as The Knife’s Silent Shout (2006) is one of my favorite albums to date. And it sounds like Karin is carrying over a lot of the positive qualities from The Knife to Fever Ray.
