    As far as I've heard, the tour is still happening, they just released the dates too early to be sure that they had the right venues in place. It's probably going to be the exact same dates, too.

    Thanks. Any word on a Jarvis Cocker tour? Best case scenario is probably one festival and two more shows in New York, I imagine.

    Awesome, thank you, hawking. And a fall tour would work out a lot better, provided it isn't at the beginning of October.

    Fever Ray

    by Marc Hogan

    March 30, 2009

    Photo by Johan Renck

    Yes, Karin Dreijer Andersson is a real person. Never mind how masks, goblin vocal effects, theatricality, and sheer seriousness of artistic vision can make that hard to imagine. Whether as one half of icy Swedish electropop duo the Knife, or now on her eponymous solo debut as Fever Ray, Andersson has accumulated an awesome and intimidating body of work. Videos by Andreas Nilsson and a reportedly in-the-works opera about Charles Darwin only boost the mystique. Yet speaking by phone from just outside Stockholm, Dreijer Andersson turns out to be easygoing and generous with laughter in a languid, thoughtful conversation. We discuss inspirations from Paul Wall to Phil Collins to Neurosis, the ways Fever Ray is different from the Knife, and how she does all that spooky stuff with her voice. For the creepier side, just come over sometime and I'll play you the interview tape at half speed. Shiver.

    Pitchfork: You've had this kind of veil of secrecy over things with the Knife. Why lift that now?

    Karin Dreijer Andersson: Umm... [long pause]. Yes? [laughs] I don't think the Knife, our goal was never to be secret. Everybody's telling us we never did any promo but we did like hundreds of interviews everywhere. And finally we did a tour. We think it's important to let the music stand for itself more than focusing on the artist or the person who is behind it. Music has the potential and the capability to create something much bigger... it has the capability to be completely free, to do anything. And I think you limit that idea when you put yourself in front of it, in a way. So, I don't think I'm doing that now, either, but I try to use myself more to go along with the music.

    Pitchfork: Identity seems to be an important theme in your work, and you've mentioned before in some of those interviews about how changing your voice allows it to be different characters. With Fever Ray, should we take this as being more the "real" you? Or is this another set of characters-- another mask?

    KDA: I think it's both. I think for me Fever Ray is a kind of mental character that has all these different kinds of voices and different kinds of shapes that it can transfer to. It is also a bit more personal than I have been working with the Knife, I think. Since it's only me, I mean. When I started playing in bands in like 1994, I was in a band with five people, and then I started to play with [brother] Olof [Dreijer], and we were only two, and now it's only myself. So I think I have been able to find out what I really really want to do myself, trying out ideas that I haven't been able to do before because you don't have to compromise when you work by yourself.

    Pitchfork: Are there some of examples of ideas on the Fever Ray album that you might have had to compromise on with your previous groups?

    KDA: The working process. You can decide totally how you want to work. And trying out everything that comes up without anybody interfering. That's very important. I go to the studio early in the morning and am there by myself for like eight hours or so, and then I go home. I think that the process has also been quite different.

    Pitchfork: So how did this solo album come about? I mean, was it just you were going into the studio and you happened to be by yourself now because Olof has moved away?

    KDA: When we got home from the U.S. shows we did in 2006, we both felt that we needed some time off from each other and we both really wanted to work on our own for a while. And so, no, I think it was quite natural sine we had been working for seven years by that time.

    Pitchfork: When you said it's more personal: There's some pretty intense emotion in the lyrics. How much is this related to things happening in your own life?

    KDA: It's me who has written it, so it must have come from somewhere. But I mean, music and art is about ideas, I think. Especially music. You have the freedom to work with your ideas and your dreams and your fantasies, which is quite hard to do in many other places.

    Pitchfork: You've mentioned two somewhat different influences for this album. Dead Man by Jim Jarmusch, with its really good soundtrack by Neil Young. And then, different but also really good music, "Miami Vice". I'm curious about how those have influenced you on this album and what other inspirations you might have had.

    KDA: One thing about "Miami Vice" which I really try to capture in music is the feeling of-- that feeling when you see those guys go away on a very fast boat with big engines in the night. It's like a music video in the episode, as they play loud music and drive the boat. That looks fantastic.

    Pitchfork: You recorded most of this in your studio, which is south of Stockholm, for seven months. You used your computer, and some computer, and-- how did you put it all together?

    KDA: Yeah, I have a computer [laughs]. I work in Ableton Live. I have mostly software synthesizers and software drum machines. I'm very lazy. I don't really like to plug in a lot of equipment and external boxes and everything. But I use the guitar a lot, yeah, with some software amplifiers, mostly, and yeah I recorded stuff but have cut it and sampled it, mostly. But I think it adds a certain organic feel to everything, which makes it a little bit warmer and more alive.

    Pitchfork: You've mentioned other influences that often seem to be movies or TV shows, but when it comes to computer-based music are there any other artists or records that are an inspiration for you? Any other electronic artists?

    KDA: Um, Phil Collins [laughs].

    Pitchfork: He counts.

    KDA: I listen a lot to "In the Air Tonight". I think it has a really beautiful sound of the vocals which I listen a lot to. And also this 80s band, Alphaville... the melodies. But I also listen to the screwed and chopped album by Paul Wall.

    Pitchfork: Oh wow, that makes a lot of sense.

    KDA: Yeah, I mean, I think, especially in the screwed and chopped versions I think it's so warm when they pitch it down, and I try to do something similar [laughs]. I mean, I listen to really different kinds of music, to just pick out the best is hard. And also this Anonymous album by Tomahawk. I don't know if they did it together with or it was inspired by Native American singing, and it came two years ago. And I think that album has really influenced me with my drums.

    Pitchfork: No German techno?

    KDA: I think I was a little tired of techno [laughs]. It was the only thing that Olof [would play]. I listen a lot more to hard rock and metal: Neurosis, High on Fire. Olof has never been into hard rock or metal. He was much more into jazz. So maybe I just like music to go somewhere else for a while.

    Pitchfork: There were a couple of different producers who helped you on this album-- Christoffer Berg and Van Rivers & the Subliminal Kid. What did they bring to the music?

    KDA: Nowadays, especially when you think of electronic music, it's like, the producer is mostly the one who makes the music or the beats and everything. But I am more, since I'm that old, when I started to make music the producer was just sitting in the back shouting and drinking beer. So I had done most of the recording, and the songs were written, when I contacted these guys. But I definitely needed help with finalizing the tracks. Van Rivers & the Subliminal Kid changed most of my programmed sound into analogue sound. They kept the programming of the beats and the arrangements but they just switched the sounds into a lot of things that they recorded themselves, as well. Which I think their tracks have a bit deeper sound and are more organic. Christoffer came up to my studio and sat down with the EQ filters and so on. But he also sent me small parts of things that he wanted me to put in the project. He sent me a file, like, "Here are some congas, put them at 1:35." So they're very different ways of working. And then we mixed, all four of us, in an analogue, old, vintage studio in Gothenburg. So I think the sound that makes, it holds it together.

    Pitchfork: While we're talking about the sound and the recording, I'm sure you've been asked this question way too many times, but how do you achieve that effect on your vocals?

    KDA: There are so many software programs that you can use. But I actually bought a physical machine, a TC-Helicon Live, which is very fun to use. But I also use the Steinberg VoiceMachine software plugin, which I think is also good. But with the Helicron machine, you can do like four harmonies at the same time, so I use it in "Concrete Walls".

    Pitchfork: How are you planning to bring Fever Ray to life on the stage?

    KDA: I'm working with Andreas Nilsson, who does the visual part of it. We're not really done yet. It will definitely be something very-- [laughs] oh, it's hard to tell. But I have a proper band, which is five people. That's the big difference.

    Pitchfork: How connected do you feel to all the music coming out of Gothenburg, like the Tough Alliance, Studio, and Jens Lekman?

    KDA: I have been living in Stockholm now for years, but I still have parents who live in Gothenburg, so I go there once in a while. I think it's some kind of mentality that Gothenburg, people from there, they hate all the people from Stockholm [laughs]. Because Stockholm is very, like, posh and uptight, and everything should be so luxurious and refurbished. And that's the part of Stockholm which I don't like either. But I live a bit outside of Stockholm and I almost never go into town. I can live anywhere, I think.

    ^It figures she would focus on that song, it is by far one of the most haunting and creepy pop songs of the 80's.

    I was just wondering who creeps me out more: Fever Ray or Bat For Lashes.

    I love em' both.
