Real instruments rather than “mouse clicks”, new fashioned broken-hearted love lyrics, and a voice that delivers words with enough emotion that you truly believe they were felt, before they were written…. The music from No Through Road speaks volumes in a way that one cay say- Man, I’ve been there. “Party to Survive” is the first single off of the Australian band’s new album Winner due out soon (stay tuned). This isn’t one of those “one hit wonder” bands either. You can download some of their other great tracks on the No Through Road website now.

(√ highly recommended)

Fever Ray “If I Had a Heart” Single

if the knife had a heart

The official video for Fever Ray’s “If I Had a Heart” came out today. Fever Ray is the solo project of Dreijer Andersson from The Knife.  The video was directed by Andreas Nilsson, who also directed another gem from The Knife with the word heart in it (but that heart was in love and sharing its beats with another, see “Heartbeats“, while this heart is, well…missing). The full album will be out in March of 2009 (March 18th=Sweden, March 23rd=UK, March 24th=US).  Get it then instead of waiting to download it after Pitchfork releases the 2009 “albums of the year”. This is one that surely won’t be pissed on.

Fever Ray – If I Had a Heart
from Self-Titled Album, March 2009


Fever Ray – If I Had a Heart Lyrics
This will never end cause I want more.
More, give me more, give me more.
This will never end cause I want more.
More, give me more, give me more.
If I had a heart, I could love you.
If I had a voice, I would sing.
After the night when I wake up,
I’ll see what tomorrow brings.
If I had a voice I would sing.

Dangling feet from window frame,
will I ever ever reach the floor?
More, give me more, give me more.
Crushed and filled with all I found,
underneath and inside,
just to come around

More, give me more, give me more
…if I had a voice I would sing
