Wildbirds & Peacedrums performed a cover of Björk's 'Human Behaviour' at the prestigious Polar Music Prize ceremony in Stockholm last night. The Icelandic star was named as a Laureate for 2010, along with soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone. Both were in attendance to receive their awards, presented by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
Mariam and Andreas were joined by a full orchestra for the rendition of one of Björk's most popular songs, taken from the album Debut. You can see the full ceremony as it went out, including performances by Robyn and Ane Brun, on Swedish TV here (50 mins in).
And on youtube:
In stark contrast to the glitzy Swedish event, in September last year the couple recorded a 'Take-Away Show' session in New York for French video site La Blogotheque, which has just been released. Filmed at the legendary Gleason's Gym (Robert DeNiro trained here leading up to his appearance in Raging Bull) in New York, Mariam and Andreas perform 'Today/Tomorrow' and 'My Heart', whilst an outtake video shows a performance of 'There Is No Light'. All three tracks are taken from last year's album, The Snake. Here is the link:
