Fever Ray lit up Terminal 5 with CHRISTEENE (pics, video, setlist)
Fever Ray, aka Karin Dreijer of The Knife, is on a brief US tour supporting their new album Radical Romantics, one of our favorites of 2023 so far. They stopped in NYC for a show at Terminal 5 on Wednesday night (5/3), transforming the cavernous venue into a mutant dance party. Dreijer, looking dapper in a white suit, was flanked onstage by a pair of vocalists and with percussionists and a lone streetlight behind them. Pulses of light flooded the stage as they moved with minimal but effective choreography. Dreijer and their cohorts leaned into each other for "Shiver," a highlight of the night, with the irresistible "Kandy" following right behind it. For the final song of the night, "Coconut" from 2009's self-titled album, they left the stage and came back out wearing hooded capes.
Drag firebrand CHRISTEENE opened the show, and you can see pictures from the night, attendee-taken videos, and Fever Ray's setlist, below.
