Their debut studio album, Life's Too Good, was released in April 1988 to unexpected international success. It spawned the band's signature hit "Birthday". The members of The Sugarcubes had formerly been in a variety of Icelandic bands. Björk had the longest career out of any of the members; she had recorded an album as early as 11 years old. In her late teens, she joined the Icelandic post-punk band Tappi Tíkarrass, who released two albums before splitting in 1983.

Birthday appeared on Icelandic band The Sugarcubes' debut album, Life’s Too Good in 1988. Björk quoted in Martin Aston’s Björkgraphy: It’s a story about a love affair between a five year old girl, a secret, and a man who lives next door. The Sugarcubes' first international single, released on the small indie label One Little Indian, the single blew up after Chris Roberts named it Single of the Week in the UK music weekly Melody Maker. Quoting from Evelyn McDonnell’s Army of She : Birthday' is a delicious lark, an upbeat ballad that crackles and pops with sensual delight.

The Sugarcubes debut album dispenses with Picasso’s despised frugality by having its sleeve printed in five acid-bright colours; as for good taste, wel. t can’t quite make its mind up about that. The creepy baby-Ballardisms of ‘Motorcrash’, one of the many infantile, surreal scenarios in Life’s Too Good’s lyrics, with a bicycling Björk chancing upon a car accident, and stealing away an injured woman to nurse in her house.
