Björk à propos du groupe

You use an Icelandic female brass section on Volta. Yet on Wanderlust, you sing, « I have lost my origin ». Was employing musicians from your homeland a way of trying to reconnect with the sort of primal essence that Iceland has instilled you with ? Or am I overanalyzing it ?
Could be. My anchor this time around was pretty global ; I’m tired of nationalism. But it is great to have them around. Perhaps they support also the « female power » aspect of the album.
