Bjork

Declare Independence

Bjork
Sonically coming off like a Warp record remixed by that salty voiced robot from the Short Circuit films, ‘Declare Independence’ is Björk battering into the next world. With the same lo-fi electro declaration that birthed the likes of Kap Bambino and The Knife, it’s not until you hear it a couple of times you realise the power of the lyrics. Shaking off the shackles of imperialism in the same victorious, bird-flicking spirit of MIA, she graffitis the tune’s rough cement edges with Banksy-style sloganeering: “Make your own stamp” and “Raise your flag”. Björk for Ruler Of The Galaxy? Yes please.
