Stream: Antony & the Johnsons f. Björk, “Flétta”

swanlights1

Antony let Björk shine on this new jam from his aptly titled Swanlights (we still covet that stuffed animal dress she wore to the Oscars, y’all, Joan Rivers can eat it). “Flétta” unfurls like a snowstorm, drifting softly at first before coming down in flurries, Antony’s blocked piano chords pushing on the lilt of Björk’s voice. And when Antony chimes in at the racing climax, their harmonies get real ’60s abstract with it, not quite sweet and no major chords, just a mildly dissonant dance of delicate, petal-like vibrations from two of the prettiest voices in music. Martha Graham choreography is imminent.
