Plunge is the second studio album by Fever Ray, an alias of Swedish musician Karin Dreijer. It is her first in eight years, following her 2009 eponymous debut. The album received acclaim from music critics, who praised it's directly political and sexual themes alongside deconstructed club beats and catchy electronic hooks. Plunge contains aggressive beats and synths, and showcases a more varied sound than that of the self-titled Fever Ray album. Lyrically, the album focuses on themes of love and desire with a striking candor. It features Dreijer's most verbose, dense and direct lyrics, and was said to be "political in a way Dreijer has not been before."
