Introducing our new “throwback Thursday” segment, Video Vault! On select Thursdays, we’re going to post our favorite music videos through the ages.
Our first video vault is Björk’s “Big Time Sensuality,” the fourth single from her 1993 album Debut.
“Big Time Sensuality” features a fresh faced Björk, dressed all in white, dancing on top of a truck driving through New York City. It’s not a swan costume, but it’s still pretty funky. Watching the video, one gets the sense that Björk spent way too much time meandering through Icelandic wilderness as a child. She is exuberant, she is bold, she is a little weird. If you’re nostalgic for 1990s New York, or if you want a sliver of Björk’s joy, “Big Time Sensuality” is the perfect medicine.
Can’t get enough of Björk? Check out Björk’s Homogenic, a book that delves into Iceland’s most bizarre musical visionary.
