In what could only be described as freaky moaning, Swedish electronica singer Fever Ray (aka Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson) shocked, thrilled and pleased fans with her acceptance speech at the recent Swedish awards show. I’m not sure which is more shocking, her moaning speech, or her grotesque melted face mask.
I have to admit that prior to this video, I had never heard of Fever Ray, heard any of Fever Ray’s electronica music, and had never been exposed to this unique flavor of freaky masked pop star. At least Lady Gaga knows how to speak to a crowd.
