Sigur Rós – Blóðberg [Music Video]

Today the Icelandic band Sigur Rós dropped the epic and haunting music video to Blóðberg.
A sweeping emotional orchestral track that we are so familiar with the band now.

About the track/music video:
The song, titled “Blóðberg”, is an epic orchestral piece that unfurls itself across seven minutes and potentially signposts the way to a promised new album, the band’s first in a decade.
It arrives alongside a video by Johan Renck.
He says of the video: “I feel as nihilistic as one could regarding the future. We are powerless against our own stupidities. Some aspects of this came to merge with my impressions of the themes of Blóðberg. The music becoming a score to my own miserable thoughts, giving them beauty as only music can.”

The song is the first in a decade to feature multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson back in the fold – having left the band in 2012 – alongside frontman Jónsi and bassist Georg Holm. “Blóðberg” features the London Contemporary Orchestra conducted by Robert Ames. It is mixed and co-produced by another frequent collaborator Paul Corley, alongside the band.
