LISTEN: Bjork – Crystalline

Bjork Online
‘Crystalline’, the first track from Björk’s new multi-arts venture and LP ‘Biophilia’, has emerged in full online following a teaser clip that surfaced earlier this month.

Offering a suitably strange initial glimpse into what Björk has termed her “multimedia project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows”, ‘Crystalline’ sees Björk offset her offbeat pop sensibility with a warm, winsome vocal hum as she sings about crystal formation over a trickle of triangle chimes, working in a jarring drum n bass melee for the track’s closing section.

You can stream the song here prior to its official release, along with a specialised accompanying iPad app, on 30 Jun.

Safari or Chrome users, can also browse the various digital wonders housed on Björk’s ‘Biophilia’ flagship site here.
