Björk's VR film finally gets an adapted music video release to the wider world and, of course, it's a treat.
Björk 'notget' by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones
Two years on from the release of Vulnicura, Björk is still producing visual gems to accompany tracks from the album, and supplying new variations on what has gone before. In the case of Notget, Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton-Jones have already directed a VR experience for the song, but now here comes a more cinematic version.
It is delightful, perhaps the best visual accompaniment to anything on Vulnicura. Beautifully costumed, as always, In the first black and white section of the video, Bjork threatens to metamorph into a giant moth-like creature.
The second half is in colour, where the directors distinctive vision fully comes into play: a combination of pulsating flourescent pinks and yellows against humming darkness to frame Bjork in a remarkable headress/mask, designed by her and fellow creative James Merry. Fabulous.
