This Bjork (that is, Kristin Bjork Kristiansdottir), too, comes from Iceland. After experiences in the Kitchen Motors collective and in Big and Brútal, she’s now going solo with the Kira Kira moniker. Her
electronica is very delicate, diluted, cut over sensitive clicks and glitches and equally fragile vocal parts.
