Is there anything more satisfying than spending a lazy weekend afternoon delving into the rich and resonant career of Icelandic pop goddess, Hera Björk? Before you answer that rhetorical question, remind yourself of the glorious majesty of Je Ne Sais Quoi, or the uplifting euphoria of Feel The Love Tonight, or the festive radiance of Christmas Song. Her career is varied and diverse and endlessly listenable - which is why she is the ideal star to recount the tales of her diva like life (and truly repatriate that word as a symbol of empowerment) in the sensational new single, Queen of Effing Everything. The title alone is enough to send shivers of delicious anticipation down the spine of any self-respecting pop music fan, and Hera doesn't disappoint with the concept, construction or execution of this ridiculously contagious musical gem. With a healthy dollop of charming humour, Hera takes us step by step through the rituals, routines and expectations of her every day life whilst firmly reminding the world that she is someone who can rise to the challenge, juggle the million and one things going on and still be rather fabulous from head to toe, inside and out. It helps that it is set to a vibrant, percolating and crescendoing dance beat that titillates the senses and has you waving your hands in the air (like you just don't care) with emphatic adulation. The verses are a hoot to listen to, the chorus a giddy refrain that pokes around your brain & sets up camp without any intention of ever vacating. It means you'll be skipping around town, proclaiming to everyone that you are the queen of effing everything - and why the hecky thump not? We all deserve to that title every now and then, so grab your tiara, dust off your dancing shoes and join Hera Björk in her anthemic call to arms. And when you look at it that way, it's less of a song and more of a goddamn necessary public service announcement. All hail Queen Hera Björk - long may she reign :)
