ALL POINTS EAST: BJÖRK (VIP)
BJORK / BECK / FATHER JOHN MISTY / FLYING LOTUS 3D / MASHROU' LEILA / SYLVAN ESSO / ALEXIS TAYLOR / AGORIA LIVE
All Points East are truly bringing the best, it's Björk.
Once a member of avant pop sextet the Sugarcubes until their 1992 demise, her solo sound saw her soar and become one of the biggest names in pop, though the genre in no way binds her sound.
With some of the most iconic songs to her name including the hauntingly minimal in overspill yet maximal in punch, Army of Me, and Oh So Quiet, there’s nothing quiet about her impact and influence on pop.
Her latest drop is single The Gate, taken from upcoming and as of yet untitled album, it is almost complete retrospect from her previous album Vulnicura. Vulnicura wrapped up the end for her long term relationship and beats came from a very raw and dissolution based fire. The Gate opens the gate to her next chapter, which is in her words about “a love that’s even greater, it’s about rediscovering love - but in a spiritual way”.
The track is structurally reminiscent of this, up there with some of her most silent, it’s dulcet, pure ballad. With vocal harmonies holding onto acoustic strings with such direct force that they become one, alongside some electronic and enigmatic vocal samples and synthesised lines it’s stunning, a song as full as her feelings suggest.
Don’t miss this, sure to go down in history.
Lineup subject to change.
