Glósóli by Sigur Rós


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.
