Fever Ray - Fever Ray
They're definitely a new gothic group. Sonically though it reminds of the early-90s, almost a soundtrack for the X-Files, the way the synthesisers sound, but all around the record it's very dark and spooky. There are very few records these days that have a gimmick but it's not completely hokey, it's almost believable when you're watching the theatrics that go along with it. So it's spooky, and makes the hairs on my arms stand on end, but the songs are pretty great, I love how dynamic she can be with her voice. Some of my favourite parts are when the vocal is pitched down, so it doesn't sound human, that's way interesting to me, you don't hear that too often, especially with a female vocal.
