Sigur Ros has posted a great video of themselves discussing the making of their latest record, the fabulous Valtari. It’s not often you see the whole band talking, and certainly not about their music in such depth. They basically go through track by track, explaining how each song was created, who was involved, like Icelandic buddies Amiina, the band’s kids, what the songs mean and more. It’s really great, so I hope you enjoy it. My favourite was the story behind Fjögur Píanó, the last track on the record. Make sure you watch to the end, because that where you learn about this track, and it’s a brilliant story.
I reviewed Valtari here, if you’d like to read. And I’m now even more excited about going to see these guys in Iceland later this year – and then again in Sydney two weeks after I get back. It’s going to be a true experience.
