Björk is an influential musician from Reykjavik who first rose to global prominence in the 1990s. Her ethereal music is arguably the most popular of Iceland’s exports.
From humble yet creative beginnings in her spectacular homeland, this talented songstress recorded her first album at the tender age of 11 years old before finding her footing in bands. Since launching a solo career, Björk’s voice has become an echo of the pioneering and unorthodox, epitomizing the freedom and experimental joys of music. She was the first Icelandic personality to gain worldwide notoriety, becoming an idol of the nineties (plus, she’s also a polymath – what a clever cookie).

Björk’s sound varies vastly from album to album. Her first solo record, “Debut”, featuring popular hits “Venus as a Boy” and “Human Behaviour” was branded as alternative/indie. Viewing music as an exploration, her later offerings explore more electronic, melodic landscapes.
Most of her life’s work can be found in her new official shop – naturally powered by the flexibility of WooCommerce. From the albums of her early years as part of The Sugarcubes to DVDs covering greatest hits and piano scorebooks of her most celebrated music, there are some real Björk-related gems to uncover.
Known to literally and figuratively whistle to her own tune, Björk’s sense of style is arguably as distinct as her sound. That means this Icelandic icon comes with all the merch. From t-shirts to tote bags, you’ll find the ideal gift for any besotted Björk fans.
