In anticipation of Sigur Ros’ new album and DVD

November 7, 2007

Sigur Ros still from forthcoming dvd Heima

I found this trailer for Sigur Ros’ new album and DVD on KEXP’s blog. The trailer looks to be on the verge of melancholy and pulls back just before the mood hits nostalgia. So, I’m hoping for an Icelandic experience without stepping foot there (well, no plans of a trip just yet anyway).


The music + visuals are gorg! Check it out.

But what do they sound like? Um, ship Radiohead to Iceland and gently nudge them to play acoustic instruments in the style of electronic shoegaze and ouila! You’ve got Sigur Ros’ sound.
