Björk - Fossora

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Glitterizer, Oct 24, 2021.

  1. I'm rationally angry we spent years battling in debates about melody, structure and lack thereof, and then Björk releases her weirdest, most menacing, literally dissonant, zero-hooks anti-pop lead single ever and it's finally deemed accessible? Is it just because she's wearing pretty make up this time around or does the song work as an actual hallucinogenic mushroom because...

  2. I like the beat.gif

    Her insistence on not singing in tune lately is something that still baffles me but at least the whole package is something new. I guess.

  3. The dissonant bass clarinets, the beat dropping in and out, the chaotic gabber only increasing in intensity by the end, the Mother Earth lyrics floating above it all...

    I don't know how she does it. But she does it. And she does it well.

  4. Double post but I'm cackling at her giving us ready made gifs on her website


    #2 and #4 are a scream tbh

  5. #4 (and other moments in the video) reminds me of Yolandi of Die Antwoord. I think it’s the nails and mannerisms.

  7. Those are some serious lashes Bjork is sporting. Probably cost a ton. I hope we get to see the Ursula/Bea Arthur hair in action for something.
  8. What a bop.

    I thought it was Hungry?

  10. I had no idea what to expect but I enjoyed it in all its 'Bastards remixes' boppery.
  11. Wow this is intense. I love me some chaotic energy Björk (this in particular has elements of "Pluto" and "Mutual Core") but I also really like how it finds space for a subtle moment, even though that part doesn't have a memorable melody. And of course I stan how it just goes batshit crazy at the end. Needless to say, I'll need more than a few listens to properly process the song. Surely must be among her most daring lead singles?

  12. Is this your shortest and most accessible post ever?

  13. The last minute of the video should come with a warning. Even her post from it on social media is about to give me a seizure.

  14. I like everything (tis a bop and the video is excellent with playful Björk back) except her vocal delivery, which is a first. She's just shouting and forcing her voice and I don't think it helps get the message across.

    The ''hook'' is catchy though, if as clumsy as usual (Are these excuses to not connect?).
  15. Hungry does make-up.

  16. She looks like she's having so much fun in the video and the song is riot as expected. So excited for the album.

    Make your own stamp!

  18. In some* vernacular, 'beat' means 'face make-up'.

    *I don't dare say which because I'm not sure in which one it actually originated. I only know drag queens appropriated it.
