It’s a good thing Sigur Rós makes sweet music, because their press photos are freakin’ STRANGE. We only managed to find one image of them as a threesome, as they no longer have four members, but we had to go with this one. It’s just odd. These Icelandic fellas must know something we don’t. One thing everyone can agree on, however, is the fact that this band rules. You’re either a fan by now, or you arent. And if you’re a fan of live music, consider adding Sigur Rós to your must-see list of bands, because word on the street is that they’re one of the best touring acts around. They play Stage AE on Thursday, September 19.
Their latest album, Kveikur, was released earlier this year and marks a new direction for the band, as it’s the first album since their debut, Von to not feature Kjartan Sveinsson, following his departure in 2012.
The buzzworthy Julianna Barwick is opening for the band during this tour. Her recent single, “One Half” has been praised by critics, fans and colleagues. Some have even gone as far to say it’s one of their albums of the year. We’ll see about that, though we are excited to experience this young star on the rise in the flesh.
