Sigur Ros

Sigur Rós an Icelandic band that create some of the most unusual sounds heard in recent music. Coming fromIceland, the bandformed in 1994. The band use some pretty standard instruments, yet create a remarkablesound. Their instrumentation consistsof just the standard guitar, drums, bass and keyboards. Guitarist and vocalistJónsi often uses a cello bow to play his guitar. Oneof the most unique things about Sigur Rós though, is Jónsi'svocals. In the words of the band's official site, the sound of Jónsi'svoice is halfway between that of Thom Yorke(Radiohead) and a choir boy.
