I got to see Sigur Rós Live Last monday and realised I hadn’t included them in my Track of the week segment yet. Although you may not know the name there is a strong chance you would have heard their music on many TV shows, adverts and Films. The reason they are so widely used by these industrys is their ability to create really emotive music, tracks can be broodingly dark and gratifyingly uplifting. For me they seem to connect to a Primitive core of my subconscious in a way I usually only feel from some classical music.
With their six albums of material there is quite a lot to get your teeth stuck into. I thought I would go back to one of the early tracks that got them noticed. Svefn-g-englar is from their second album and is still one of my favourites.
If you like it give more a listen as their sound is so unique they are the only way to get it.
