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.
