Bjork – Lionsong (from Vulnicura, One Little Indian)

A distinct echo in this from Bjork’s Post album which is one that always has a soft spot in my heart.

Presumably it’s those bending swooping Bollywood strings. Those alone and her vocal are enough to make this captivating.

The backbeats are more reminiscient of the Homogenic album maybe. Thudding and brooding.

Notice too the wonderful layering of her vocal at the beginning of the song. Not double tracking. Quixotic and out of sync.

The triumph here overall is taking deeply emotional content and turning it into a strangely uplifting experience for the listener.

Masterful as always.
