Björk​ à propos de serpentwithfeet

“I was introduced to him by Leila Arab, my oldest friend and collaborator in England. We hung out a lot in Brooklyn and he took me to a gospel church, and stood in the audience with me. I was gonna be really cool and standoffish, being the agnostic person I am when it comes to religion, but in three minutes I was singing along with him to songs I’d never heard before at the top of my lungs. He’s so talented and so warm and flowing, there’s no stifled or stagnant energy in him. I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do in the future.” The Guardian Guide

i am soooo thrilled that serpentwithfeet was up for making a new version of blissing me ! he is so incredibly generous on it , his voice and words overflowingly beautiful ! absolutely humbly honoured !!! björk - facebook

“He is, vocally, one of the most emotionally generous singers,” Björk says over email. She says she admires the “balanced idiosyncratic pagan spiritual angle” to his work — an aesthetic she describes as “optimistic goth.” The two first met through Carolan, and Wise had the chance to sing in front of her, one on one, before the EP’s official release. “His lyrics are incredibly personal,” Björk adds. “I just find [his music] so moist and vibrant to listen to.” the fader

serpentwithfeet​ à propos de Björk

« Your work has been a relentless compass for me through the years. Your words have given so many of us the real estate to be piercingly honest. ‘Unravel’, ‘Hyperballad’ and ‘Lionsong‘ are just a few Bjork monuments in my life. » Dazed & confused

“I literally fell off my bed when she asked” the fader

i’ve loved Björk since i was a taciturn
11-yr old in Baltimore. i remember making tacky denim costumes with hot glue & dancing to “Hidden Place”.

20 years later Björk has asked me to join her for her month-long residency at The Shed & im more than thrilled ! Twitter
