Sigur Rōs : Glōsōli

An absolutely mesmerizing video, from a remarkably talented group.

Man. I miss Iceland.

You've been to Iceland? Looks cold.

I love the cold.

I holidayed there a couple of years back, in February... for a week. It was delightful!

That video gave me the chills. I've been putting off getting that album but must have it now! Thanks.

Wow, amazing. I love Sigur Ros. I went to Iceland briefly (2 days) last summer - so gorgeous, so peaceful.

I haven't seen the video yet, but am completely taken with Takk - I can't stop listening to it over and over at the moment! I'm going to see Sigur Ros in concert for the first time in November in Birmingham - I can't wait! Have you heard any music by the band 'Gjallarhorn' - they sing Swedish/ Finnish/ Nordic/ Icelandic folk songs and are brilliant!

Silus Grok said...

I haven't heard of Gjallarhorn... I wonder how Sigur Ros are in concert?

Silus Grok said...

Simon... I see you're a member of the Society of Friends... wonderful! Among Christian denominations, the Quakers are one of my favorites.

Simon was kind enough to e-mail me a linky to Gjallahorn... thought I'd share it with y'all:

The other mesmerizing video by Sigur Ros, and the first one I ever saw is:

The song in the video is 10minutes long, however, here it is cut short to about 5 or 7 minutes.

I've thought of this video a lot over the last year since I first saw it.
