Hunter (4:15)

Cover of Homogenic

From Homogenic and 13 other releases

This song is written by Björk and produced by Björk in collaboration with Mark Bell of LFO. The hunting song of Homogenic (1997). The video was directed by long time collaborator Paul White of Me Company. It was his first video for Björk and it used complicated 3d animation by Digital Domain.

“I guess that song’s about when you have a lot of people that work for you and you sort-of have to write songs or people get unemployed, you know? In most cases, it’s inspiring but in that particular song I was pissed off with it. I was ready for a break but it didn’t seem fair on the people I worked with at the time.”

    This is one of the best songs that Bjork manages to use her voice to blend with the music rather than fight against it.

    1:37 - 2:00 gives me the biggest chills ever - the layering of her vocals is amazing. <-- Exactly my thoughts.

    I must admit I'm not a big fan of Bjork but this is way too good to ignore :)
