Dark Matter

Album: Biophilia (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Modern cosmology and astronomy suggest that the universe contains "dark matter," a substance whose existence cannot be directly observed as it neither emits nor scatters light or other electromagnetic radiation. Instead, its existence is inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter. Björk sings in this song meaningless strings of vowels and consonants, since the dark matter phenomena are unexplainable.
