Bjork rocking out at the end of this video for Crystalline, the first single from the album Biophilia, is exactly how she was rocking out at Bestival last Sunday night. She closed the festival on the Main Stage (with Erol Alkan and Fatboy Slim doing the honours on other stages) and the whole experience was just magical – complete with her incredible choir, custom built instruments, fireworks and heart confetti.
The vid is directed by indie favourite Michel Gondry who has done Bjork’s music videos in the past: its a nice fit – quirky and innocent, playful but a bit too obscure for some tastes. This one’s pretty simple though, fitting in with her themes of nature, cosmogony and physics – she even got David Attenborough to provide the voiceover for her iPhone/iPad app and Bestival performance. What a woman.
