Björk – Utopia

Björk is on the rebound. After the darkness that swirled around her previous studio album, “Vulnicura,” released in 2015 after a traumatic breakup with artist Matthew Barney, the Icelandic singer-songwriter rediscovers the light on “Utopia.” The album is marked with the celestial sounds of flutes and birdcalls, as well as the glitchy electronic effects that have defined her work for the past three decades. “Sending each other MP3s/ falling in love to a song,” she confides over the soft, cascading harps of “Blissing Me.” The airy pulse of “The Gate,” with Björk’s soaring voice at the helm, echoes the classics “Pagan Poetry” and “Venus as a Boy” with the infinitely repeated chorus, “I care for you, care for you.” After all these years, she’s still capable of making something as mundane as love feel cosmic.
