Sigur Rós decided to do something interesting with their new album because, well because they’re Sigur Rós and that’s what they do. This time around they gave a small sum of money to various film makers and asked them to make music videos for various tracks on the record. This is the offering from Inga Brigisdottir for the track “Varúð”. It’s an animated version of the album cover and is nothing if not hypnotic.
So far as the song goes it’s everything you love about Sigur Rós and you should expect it to appear on the trailers for a dozen nature documentaries sometime soon. If you’re a fan of the kind of Sigur Rós tracks that just build and build then you’re in for a treat with this one.
