Another Single to Add to the Mythology . . .

“Volta” has certainly affected many people in many ways, be it with either extreme glee or unabiding hatred, and for me personally the line is at its most unstable in the track “Declare Independence.” With Björk foregoing her most accomplished vocal wonders, a risky endeavor, by replacing her usual guttural snipes with a spoken anthem, she took a chance that I can still not wrap my head around completely. However, the musical arrangement is so severe and so jaunting, that the message Björk was trying to convey actually succeeded, by waking up the population with, if nothing else, a political message and a thumping electronic dance line. In short, the reason people continue to listen to Björk after thirty years of official releases can be nicely summed up in “Independence,” for she is so intent on expanding her own musical abilities and attempting something alien to her other sensibilities (Timbaland, anyone?) that she will even sacrifice some of her old “fans” for the sake of her development. Again, a risky endeavor, to be sure, but a purposeful composer lies behind the knitwear and makeup, and if you have the opportunity to hear this song in concert, you would be hard-pressed not to face the creature . . . up close and personal. And I can safely say your opinion of the song would change.

Björk first came to prominence as one of the lead vocalists of the avant pop Icelandic sextet the Sugarcubes, but when she launched a solo career after the group's 1992 demise, she quickly eclipsed her old band's popularity. Instead of following in the Sugarcubes' arty guitar rock pretensions, Björk immersed herself in dance and club culture, working with many of the biggest names in the genre, including Nellee Hooper, Underworld, and Tricky. Debut, her first solo effort (except for an Icelandic-only...
