Stranger Than Kindness by Fever Ray

Karin Andersson, better know as one half of The Knife and her own solo work Fever Ray, has a new video out and it continues her creepy but amazing streak. The song is a cover of Nick Cave’s Stranger Than Kindness and it’s a pretty good version of, though with some characteristically Fever Ray instrumentals behind it. The video was directed by frequent collaborator Andreas Nilsson who also did the video for If I Had a Heart.

The video features Karin looking like an old woman and there’s a whole bunch of lasers shooting everywhere. Of course it has a really dark ambience to it all or it wouldn’t be a Fever Ray video.Really great song with a really crazy looking music video.
