Glósóli by Sigur Rós

Standard

An enchanting video about a group of children (seemingly after the Apocalypse) who wander about the wilderness, and then defy the laws of physics. (Spoiler: I don’t think little Örn makes it.)

Sigur Rós play a dream pop tune that initially sounds like a music box melody  and slowly builds into an electric guitar frenzy.

This was the song that turned me onto to this band, who’ve released 5 studio albums and 3 EPs. Their music is not for everybody, especially considering that all their music is sung in Icelandic and don’t make any sense. Their music has been in used in tons of movies, tv shows and commercials.  The band is currently on hiatus to pursue solo projects.

  1. I don’t think any of them made it. My take is they set their spirits free by jumping to their deaths. Oh and I LOVE IT!! Thanks for sharing. I just came across your site tonight after a friend shared a link on Facebook. I’m bookmarking and will be back!

  2. Thanks. Your friend must have good taste in music. 🙂
    I think little Örn is still asleep, and this is a dream he’s having. The colour of the video changes after they sleep from a darker shade to lighter one. Just MHO.
