Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Plunge by Fever Ray, out now on Mute.

Fever Ray is the solo project of Karin Dreijer, one half of the influential electronic pop duo The Knife, which she’s in with her brother Olof. The Stockholm siblings have been relatively quiet since their last album, Shaking the Habitual, which came out in 2013, but Karin has broken that silence with a powerful and ambitious new album called Plunge. Arriving 9 years after her solo debut, Plunge finds Karin experimenting even more with energy and sound – a bright and spirited burst of synths, rhythms and textures – that make this an exciting and intensely urgent collection of songs.
