Each day that Björk releases a new video is like Christmas. She’s firmly established herself on the cutting edge of just how artistic and experimental music vids can really be. I loves me some Björk.
In the new video for “The Dull Flame Of Desire”, featuring Antony Hegarty, the three runners-up from the online competition to create a vid for “Innocence” were each given a third of the song to direct. Christoph Jantos, Masahiro Mogari and Marçal Cuberta Junca all balanced the task of interpreting their own vision while still giving the video a consistency beautifully. I especially like the third section, where Björk’s and Hegarty’s faces morph into each other following the sway of the song.
It’s not her most amazing video ever, but just like sex and pizza, even “just good” Björk is still better than most.
