Vocal technique, exercises, tips and relevant resources

Are you a beginner or advanced singer?

If you want to learn to sing like Björk, you'll need to focus on her unique style, which is a combination of a childlike voice and unorthodox singing techniques blended with electronica, trip-hop, and avant-garde pop. Björk's music has been described as otherworldly, experimental, and deeply emotional.

First of all, you need to understand your vocal range. Use Singing Carrots' vocal range test to determine your voice range. You can use this test to compare your range with the vocal range of Björk and other famous singers.

One of Bjork’s trademark sounds is the “flutter.” For example, listen to the song “Army of Me.” Practicing a vocal exercise like “Fluttering Exercise”, which can be found on Singing Carrots' related skill-based videos, will help you achieve this sound.

Additionally, Björk often uses heavy nasal resonance which produces a unique and rich sound in her performances. To master this technique, you can try “Soft Palate Control Exercise” and “Stop Sounding Nasal Exercise” from Singing Carrots' related skill-based videos.

In addition to the above techniques, you need to pay attention to your breathing and posture. Proper breathing and good singing posture are essential. You can read Singing Carrots’ article on breathing basics, and Singing Carrots’ article on posture which explains the importance of these aspects in singing.

Once you've developed these techniques, now it's time to practice Björk's famous songs. Songs like “It’s Oh So Quiet,” “Hyperballad,” “Bachelorette,” “Joga,” and “The Anchor Song” are excellent songs to practice your singing skills.

Overall, learning to sound like Björk requires dedication, patience, and solid techniques. You can learn more about the basics of singing, vocal range, breathing, articulation, and resonance using Singing Carrots' articles and vocal exercises mentioned above.
