Directed by LA-based artist-filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang — who also did the artwork for Bjork’s Biophilia remix album — Bjork’s new music video for Mutual Core has her buried to her waist in sand for a brief moment of peace before lava-filled rock demons erupt from the ground and shuffle around, tonguing each other violently with the force of plate tectonics. There’s a whole lot of fire, explosions, calm fury and continental violence spewing forth in this one. We like it, obviously.
