Alexander Jallow (Left) Björk (Right)

The legendary Singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir and Chef Alexander Jallow are hanging out together according to “DV” sources. They have been seen eating together in many parts of the city and driving together.

Just the other day, they enjoyed the mild weather holding hands while walking in the western towns and stopped for a drink with friends at Kaffi Vest.

Alex as he is called, is from Gambia and is the founder of the restaurant “Ogolúgó” on Laugavegur in Reykjavik, Iceland. Among other things, Alex hosted a fundraising dinner to support the Church Relief Society. Ogolúgó specializes in African dishes but…


Björk and Son, Sindri Eldon

Björk’s son Sindri Eldon has outraged the ignorant Twitter mobsters after a 15 year old interview resurfaced showing that he once claimed to be a better songwriter than his mother had gone viral.

In the interview, from 15 years ago had resurfaced on Twitter this Saturday (July 10), Where Sindri was quoted saying “My main statement will be to prove to everyone what I’ve secretly known for ages, that I’m a better songwriter and lyricist than 90 per cent of Icelandic musicians, my mother included.”

Apparently, fans stormed Twitter to voice their premature judgements, to which Eldon responded, “Ok. first…


Björk on the Red carpet at the 2001 Oscars

Dior’s new Cruise 2022 Collection showcased a very well known dress from the early 2k. While runway shows are just starting to come back again, Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri showed off her latest collection at Athens’s historic Panathenaic Stadium. The show featured glorious gowns, but it was the last one that caught everyone’s eye and sent us back in time. It seems like Chiuri was inspired by singer Björk’s infamous dress from the 2001 Oscars. You know, the swan dress that’s still talked about to this day? …


Jake Miller (Sound Engineer) has worked with Björk previously.

First of all, let’s make it clear that this is pure speculation. That being said, it is reported on Jake Miller’s official website, that the sound engineer is working on Björk’s “To Be Announced” project. Miller has been collaborating with Björk since 2018 and he took part of Cornucopia team, designing its 360º sound. Among his projects we can find “KiCk i” by Arca, of which he has engineered some selected tracks.

Also back in 2018, Björk recorded at the Black Rock Studio in Greece, and last year a song called “Hymn” was registered on ASCAP but has yet to…

Julia Jacklin and RVG, photo by Jacob Diamond

Julia Jacklin and Australia’s RVG collaborated to record a dreamy and breezy cover of Björk’s “Army of Me”

In a statement about the collab, Jacklin said: “I just love Bjork and I love RVG. I was running on a treadmill which I don’t do very often and I was listening to ‘Army of Me’ over and over again to make me feel stronger than I am. Then I thought why not try and cover this song with another artist that makes me feel stronger than I am and I did! Was a good musical punch in the face to wake…

BEWARE! BJORK SPOILER ALERT!

Björk (Left) Director Robert Eggers (Right)

I have been a major advocate of Eggers’ filmmaking skills, at least ever since I saw “The Witch” at Sundance 6 years ago. He’s the real deal, even if I thought “The Lighthouse,” a compulsively watchable film, was a tad beneath Eggers’ skills as a filmmaker. “The Northman,” which finished production just a few months ago, stars Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgård, and Willem Dafoe. There is no word yet on what the plot is about, and I doubt, much like with his other films, we will get plot detail before release.

Visualization

Björk Apartment Project was designed by Filip Kulčar and visualised by Metod Kulčar. Project represents the conceptual design of Björk’s new apartment located in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Architect’s statement: We enter the room through a high, long, slightly dark corridor in which we are surrounded by 7 m high walls. These give us a sense of the crampedness, smallness and absence of man, but the light coming from the end opens up hope and a way out. It leads us into the living space, which takes us into the boundless landscape embrace with spacious horizons. …
