[ Song of the Week ] The Sugarcubes – “Planet”

from the album Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week! (1989)

One of my favorite songs from the Icelandic band. The production and clean electric guitar sound give the song a distinct New Wave feel (and to my ears, an ahead of its time early ’90s feel). And if that woman’s voice and face seem a bit familiar, they should be. This is the band Bj√∂rk was in before breaking out into her highly experimental solo career.
