Unsettling, emotive, and visually mesmerising, one of Iceland’s most fascinating musicians Björk has released the first music video off of her newest album, Vulnicura.
The track itself comes from the “pre-breakup” portion of Vulnicura, lamenting an escaping love while claiming to be indifferent towards it. The video, opening with the image of a gaping, throbbing chest cavity, sets the feel of her impassioned struggle and plays it against clips of her singing, meant to convey her strength. The result is a heavily emotional push-and-pull of internal conflict that is relatable to all who have loved and lost.
