Björk season is upon us, and today brings the first official video from the fantastical, MoMA-featured musician's recent album Vulnicura. The visual for "Lionsong" features Björk dancing in an eerily lit space while wearing a pleather body suit and a dandelion-esque crown of thorns — a nod to the Vulnicura album art.
"Björk’s character for 'Lionsong' had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze," the video's directors, Inez and Vinoodh, told Noisey. "She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound."
That's what I meant to say. The bloody galaxy of Björk's wound.
