Bjork – black lake

Icelandic songtress and musician extraordinaire Bjork continues giving away with the release of the music video for black lake — originally another MOMA [1] presentation — for us unlucky mere mortals not able to attend. Another video shot in Iceland’s landscapes of lava, caves and moss fields by Andrew Huang.

As one of the most vulnerable songs in Vulnicura, Bjork hides none of the pain for the music video.
