sigur rós – brennisteinn

Anything new from sigur ros incites so much excitement for me. and this time it was no different. I was intrigued by brennisteinn (or brimstone in english) from when I first heard it late last year on their valtari tour. the heavy drums, and the return of the bowed guitar, in sharp contrast with jonsi’s celestial falsetto. The music video is just as astonishing. an metaphor for industrialism, the toxic yellow carving its relentless path of destruction through the darkness.

Kveikur is released on June 18. can’t wait.
