Björk’s new video for the song Wanderlust of the album Volta has just been released… it is (in my humble opinion) a groundbraking video, and following Björk’s tradition it will make you either love it or hate it, but its hard not to notice it.
Not wanting to spoil it for whomever hasn’t seen it, I won’t say much about it, but I really recommend it. I personally liked it a lot, and yes, when you see it the first thing that comes to your mind is “What the hell did they smoke to make that??”. Well, as it turns out, they didn’t smoke anything… they just had some mushrooms ;) Yes, you read that right hehe. The video was made by the duo Encyclopedia Pictura and as they stated in this interview by the NY Times, they did have some shrooms to write the video. What makes me wonder… is it ethical to create such innovative ‘art’ by using illegal aids? Its like going to the olympic games but on steroids don’t you think?
In any case, I think the video is great. You can watch it below from YouTube but I really recommend watching it HERE at a much higher resolution.
Enjoy (or not!)
