Before Fever Ray and The Knife became well-known names in the early 2000s electronic music scene, there was Honey Is Cool. The band was formed by Karin Dreijer Andersson and her brother, Olaf, in 1994. They released only two albums over the course of a couple of years before disbanding in 2001.
You can listen to their 1999 album, “Early Morning Are You Working?” in full above. It’s fascinating to hear Karin’s distinctive voice in the songs, and you can hear the early influences of what would eventually become The Knife.
