Julian's career following Bjork's?
Julian's career following Bjork's?Posted by Max Fischer on November 2, 2009 at 4:34 pm
For some reason Julian and Bjork seem very similar to me. I think both are prodigies that have amazing voices.. and both started punk bands first.. Bjork started the Sugarcubes then she had electronic solo albums. Bjork's punk band was also very cerebral like the Strokes. When listening to Julian's solo album it is uncanny to me how similar their tastes are. They both have incredibly diverse songs.
Edit: Oh yeah.. I forgot to mention.. Bjork started out studying classical music. So did Julian.
So both Julian and Bjork had the exact same path..
-Both studied classical music composition when young
-Both started punk bands first - cerebral punk bands
-both had electronic solo careers with incredibly diverse pop songs - Bjork also said the same kinds of things about trying to raise the level of people's tastes in music with pop songs.
Both also seem to be focused on many of the same issues too.. global issues. Both have an all encompassing view of history -- not prisoners of the moment -- musically or culturally.
