Sigur Ros - 'Kveikur'

Sigur Ros - 'Kveikur'

For almost 20 years, across six albums, celestial string swells and sweet, soothing post-rock have been the cornerstones of Sigur Rós’ sound. It’s a formula that’s seen them become Iceland’s biggest ever band. And one that, in 2005, saw...

Sigur Ros - 'Valtari'

Sigur Ros - 'Valtari'

In which the Icelandic troupe return from their hiatus with a startling new brostep direction. Not really, just joking. Longtime fans will be delighted to hear that ‘Valtari’ eschews the Coldplay-isms of 2008’s ‘Með suð í eyrum við...

Sigur Ros - 'Dauðalogn'

Sigur Ros - 'Dauðalogn'

In a move that can only be described as quite interesting, Sigur Ros debuted their new tune in the closing minutes of a Vampire Diaries episode in which some people drown in a car. It suited the scene, floating as it does like a sad, peaceful...

As incongruous sights go, it was up there with seeing Kasabian doing Swan Lake. In 2000, when the relatively unknown Sigur Rós played All Tomorrow’s Parties, I saw the four unearthly Icelandic pixies gaze through the dilapidated doorway of...

Nearly nine years on from their breakthrough ‘Agætis Byrjun’ the band who re-imagined glacial rock are back. But do we still care? With a whole new generation re-fashioning post-rock’s dreamscapes into something bolder, SR’s take on it...

Sigur Ros : Takk

Sigur Ros : Takk

They play fewer gigs than Jesus throws "coming home" parties, their last record had no song titles and Jónsi Birgisson could walk around with "I’m the singer in Sigur Rós" stencilled on his forehead and still you’d have no idea who he was or...

Sigur Ros : London Hammersmith Apollo

Sigur Ros : London Hammersmith Apollo

Sometimes it's the tiny things that count. The Flaming Lips don't really need to throw those giant balloons into the audience but, hey, it's instant joy for very little effort. All Sigur Rós do tonight is set up three glitter balls to spin...

Sigur Ros :  ( )

Sigur Ros : ( )

They sing, when they can be bothered, in an invented language called 'Hopelandish'. They perform at capital-A art events with names like Odin's Magic Raven. And now their third album is adorned with just a pair of empty brackets and no track...

Sigur Ros: London Shepherd's Bush Empire

So this is really what the dark side of the moon sounds like. Four fragile, waif-like creatures stroll out from the wings. The Empire, hushed to a near-silence anyway by the soothing purple lights and the distant hum of whale music that serves...
