Watch: Björk dazzles with Voltaic

on June 24, 2009, 11:00am

Iceland’s chaotic princess, Björk, has been repeatedly praised for her outrageous costumes, thrilling live performances and mind-boggling theatrics, which is why we’re so excited about Voltaic finally hitting the shelves. But just when we thought our day couldn’t get any better, Björk revealed a couple of exclusive videos from Voltaic: The Volta Tour, including “Declare Independence” and “Sonnets/Unrealities XI”.

The slow and enchanting “Sonnets/Unrealities XI”, taken during her performance in Reykjavik, features Björk in a glittering gown, as she’s backed by a choir. Then, “Declare Independence” comes along and riles up the moment with its loud, intoxicating rhythm as her audience has a wailing good time with all of the mindless electronic noise, confetti, lasers, bare feet and shouting going on up stage. Honestly, it’s hard to choose a favorite between the two, so we’ll leave you to be the judge of that one.

Now, down below we’ve got a slew of goodies for you including the two exclusive videos, and a full tracklisting of Voltaic: The Volta Tour. We’ve also got a list of dates for the confirmed select screenings of the Voltaic DVD’s; initiated in conjunction with the release of the epic boxed set of all things Björk (from the Volta Tour). Now, no one can say Björk’s been taking it easy any more.
