I see color
Raining down
Feral feeling
Swaying sound
But I don't know what you want

I am open
I am restless
Let me feel it out
Let it all come out

Wake me up
I'm fever dreaming
And now I lose control
I'm fever dreaming

Shake it out
It's just a-what I'm feeling
And now I take control
I'm fever dreaming

I'm fever dreaming

Oh so quiet
When they laid me in the stream
And the starlit sky
Grew before my eyes
Twenty-two women stood by the banks and cried
Oh ah

Wake me up
I'm fever dreaming
And now I lose control
I'm fever dreaming

Shake it out
It's just what I'm feeling
And now I take control
I'm fever dreaming

I'm fever dreaming
I must be fever dreaming
I'm fever dreaming

My Solid 7 emoji 

I like this...... a lot
It’s ‘I’m fever dreaming’ according to the RP lyrics library. Settled!

Iceland again



Unkind as it may sound, but I fear Björk made me suspicious of the Icelandic music scene for ever.
I really love Nanna's passionate voice, and this one jams a bit harder than their previous songs heard here. I'd love to see them do this live!
Iceland again

No, I think it's tree-hen. The arboreal cousin of the standard farm variety.

There needs to be more compression - This tune needs to be at 11 from start to finish.  There's too much music out there with crescendo & diminutive movements.
Really digging this. Great rocking energy.
sounds like Tegan and Sara to me.

I used to have thoughts like that about lots of music bands, genres, decades. Turns out I was wrong every time.
 

....aand, as if in reply to your comment, @BillG played a twofer, following this with 'Visitor' which sounds nothing like 'Alligator'. :)

Of Monsters and Men, now banjo-free!
I'm free of three hills ?
Reminds me of Arcade Fire, not that that's a bad thing.
Thought it was sinead O’Connor for a while there 🤔
Great song!
Super cool rockin'!  So cool, it's hot!

I heard that too.  This is my first listen.  Thought it was a Belly song I missed for a minute.

I'll give it an 8.  Nice texture to it.
Wow, I can't stand the couple of singles by this band that usually get played, but this is much better!
Perfect for a much-needed mid-afternoon office dance break! 
For some reason I always want a G&T when I hear this song !  
I like this but it reminds me of Teigan and Sara. I don't know if that's a good thing.
The same singalong, all songs sound exactly the same. Boring.
C S N crowd pushing that rating down I'm thinking...

First pop song out of Iceland that has wondering why it is on the play list......

I don't know. Maybe because it's a great song?

I like her attitude.
Not bad at a first listen... I'll keep an ear on it :D
This song sounds a lot like Silversun Pickups..already liked this band but this is a good sound for them
Gimme an alligator sandwich and make it snappy! :o) Groucho Marx

And it almost had me hit the next-track button.....
Sounds very much like Chrvches, but slightly more pop-y. If you guys are into this sound give that band a listen, they're pretty good.

This is so gooooood!

Now that's all I can hear. Ahhhhhhhhhhh
This is great. Their sound changed. Still like it.
I thought it was feed the tree...
I liked their old sound a lot better.

I went to look up the lyrics because this is exactly what I heard and wondered if there was some reference to the band Fever Tree.
Ah - so she's not "Fever Tree Head"
i like their older stuff. this is even better. 
PSD button brought me here.  

Not really a fan - Of Monsters and Men.   Going with a 5 on my first listen.

Low number of ratings (13) at time of post.  Average went to 6.5 from 6.1.
Ooooh! The first to comment!

Shame all I can say of this is. . .  'Meh'.

Sorry.
