Sigur Ros

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