Fever Ray in Helsinki

A few days ago I was lucky enough to catch Fever Ray playing at Tavastia in Helsinki. The album is incredible, and the four-piece band actually managed to make it sound as good, if not better, live.
Towards the end of the set there was a heart-stopping moment when Karin sang a cover of Vashti Bunyan's Here Before, and I suddenly felt deliriously happy to be stood in that spot, surrounded by strangers, so far from my home, with the words falling towards my face like cool rain in a heatwave.

  1. oh my, that would've been something to see. I imagine she'll do two more shows, only to then return to the cottage in the forest to live on swedish social security, never to be seen again in the outside world. EVER.
