Icelandic bright sparks go dark with new record...
Kveikur, the seventh studio album from ambient soundscapists Sigur Ros, arrives this weekend. The trio of Jónsi, Georg and Orri return to more tangible song structures following last year's more abstract (yet still beautiful) release, Valtari. With a November date in The O2 still quite some time away, fans and new converts have plenty of time to wrap their ears around new compositions such as the fiery brimstone beat of 'Brennisteinn' and the swelling tornado that is 'Stormur'. And if the weekend is still too far away, then stream the album in full over on the official Sigur Ros website.
For more on Sigur Ros visit:
- Kveikur will be releasd on 14th June (Ireland) and 17th June 2013
- Sigur Ros play The O2, 16th November
