Watch Fever Ray’s New “Shiver” Video


Fever Ray has shared a video for the Radical Romantics track “Shiver.” Bodybuilder Irene Andersen stars as a dubiously qualified medical practitioner attending to Karin Dreijer in an operating theater. As with the previous videos in the Radical Romantics pentalogy, Martin Falck directed the short. Watch the video below.

Falck and Dreijer said of the video in press materials:

We fantasized about what might have happened to these two skeletons. Were they so in love they had their mouths and noses too close to each other, or couldn’t stop kissing so they died of carbon monoxide poisoning? Or did a dinosaur kill them, and they died in fear holding each other? Was it a volcano, and they were protecting themselves from the lava burning their flesh? Maybe they weren’t in love at all; perhaps they were lifelong enemies facing their final struggle strangling each other? We felt there was a beautiful story there about the struggles of falling in love and the vulnerability you might feel being “examined” by your love interest who wants to make sure you really are the one they can trust and form a relationship with, that will last for eternity.
