Fever Ray and Björk remix each other's songs on a new 12-inch single.

Well, here's a dang remix of mutant-pop minds. On a new 12-inch single, Fever Ray, Björk and The Knife have combined into a single organism, mangling and modifying each other's songs. Karin Dreijer and Björk also add vocals to their respective remixes.

Karin Dreijer gives Björk's sparse, floating Utopia track, "Feature Creatures" a neon-synth makeover, clustering her voice in an industrial slough, and darkening the disassembled man of Björk's heart.

In return, Björk completely warps a track from Fever Ray's Plunge, cutting "This Country Makes It Hard to F***" into shards of noise and gut-churning bass drops.

The Knife, which features Karin Dreijer along with their brother Olof, turns "Features Creatures" into a brassy, percussion-heavy club banger — its full-body workout would've slid perfectly into The Knife's radical Shaking the Habitual series of concerts.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
