New Music // Sigur Rós – Brennisteinn

29 Mar

Sigur Rós are unlike any other band in the world, and could arguably be considered one of the best of all time.

Their songs are epic, evocative, emotional, transcendent, and absolutely beautiful; but even those grandiose words don’t come close to accurately describing their music. Perhaps it’s fitting that they’re from a place as unique and unusual as Iceland, because their music doesn’t seem to be of this earth; theirs is truly the music of angels.

Sadly, one of their members has split from the group to pursue a different path but this new song, Brennisteinn, from their first album since his departure, Kveikur, shows they’re otherworldy magic hasn’t diminished. In fact, if anything they sound more ferocious than they’ve ever been.
