Björk – 'Venus As A Boy'  One Little Indian (122 TP 7, 1993)
 
‘Venus As A Boy’ was the second single to be released from Björk’s much revered Debut, the innovative catalyst which kick-started one of music’s most esoteric and creatively rich solo careers.
Graceful strings adorn choruses of off-kilter percussion, constructing sonic landscapes that feel both unnerving and familiar, marking an experimental departure from Björk’s noise-tinged post-punk roots with the Sugarcubes. As ever, her vocal performance takes centre stage; guttural growls are paired with angelic whispers and intricate micro-inflections to form the instantly recognisable style that has spawned no end of would-be imitators.
A chart-topper in her native Iceland, ‘Venus As A Boy’ remains a stand-out cut from the staggeringly extensive and diverse catalogue that has secured Björk an unquestionable place in music’s nobility.
