I’ve never really “gotten” Bjork for the most part. While I can appreciate many unconventional music styles, I don’t often connect with her music.
However, for every rule, there is an exception. And mine is Bjork’s “Earth Intruders”.
Unlike most of my experiences with Bjork, where it can feel like vocal meandering away from the rest of the track, this song actually meshes her bold voice with the tribal beats. The result is an intoxicating song that gets the blood flowing and the head bobbing.
And the lesson is that you don’t always have to connect with an artist to appreciate their music.
