Is anyone else here a fan of Sigur Ros?


They're a band out of iceland and make some really powerful and interesting music. It's definitely not for everyone, but I highly recommend at least checking it out.


If you've seen Vanilla Sky there are a couple songs in there, or go check out the web site: http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/


Watch the video for Untitled #1. Brilliant.

Well, I'm glad for this thread because a while back I saw a Sigur Ros (what does that mean anyway?) video where there are a bunch of kids wearing radiation suits and they're all running around in a sort of desolate wasteland. The song is beautiful but I can't for the life of me remember what it is called. Help anyone?

I just got their first two albums in the mail today: "Von" and "Von Brigdi (Recycle Bin)"


They were only released in Iceland but if you're willing to shell out some cash you can usually find them on Ebay. They're not as enjoyable as the most recent albums, but it's interesting to hear how they started out. Very dark and atmospheric.
