It's nice to hear a darker Sigur Ros again. I've missed the Agaetis Byrjun sound.

holy shit this sounds like a good addition to their discography, development looks promising. This
will be a masterpiece in my eyes if all songs fall in the singles footsteps, no question

They played three new songs when I saw them a few weeks ago, and they all had this sort of vibe. They were also all incredible.

If the album follows this style it will be immense.

It's kinda odd that the band members are in the video. That's very out of the norm for them. Kjartan must've been the pretentious one all along haha.

Wasn't the gap between their last two albums like 4-5 years? I know it's because of hiatus but still it was just last year

new song is like......fuk

I guess they decided that Valtari's sound wasn't one they felt like pursuing. The drummer must be happy about that!!!

Going to be amazing. Heard Brennisteinn, Kveikur and Yfirborð at Brixton Academy on the 9th of March so I'm going to pre-order the vinyl.

They wrote Valtari and this to be released in quick succession. this hasn't been rushed! I love Valtari and their old stuff and they're changing it up again.

Ye gods these guys are talented

Didn't give a crap about their last few albums. This sounds amazing, I'm glad they're doing some darker stuff and trying something new. It definitely sounds heavier than their previous work.

Everything they do has been good to fantastic. Even Valtari (it was just an album you wouldn't think much of if you don't listen to much ambient).

I go to a lot of live shows, but their performance in Glasgow a few weeks ago was the best I've ever witnessed by so far it's not even funny. Honestly, I was shell shocked for a few days afterwards, they were that good.

cool direction they are taking

I go to a lot of live shows, but their performance in Glasgow a few weeks ago was the best I've
ever witnessed by so far it's not even funny. Honestly, I was shell shocked for a few days afterwards,
they were that good.

I felt the same way after seeing them at Mcmenamins last summer. They played in the middle of the
woods; the feeling was completely surreal. They are tied for my favorite live performance of all time,
the other favorite being WU LYF.
