Sigur Ros is a ambient/ post rock band from Iceland. What makes this four piece band so good is the sounds they are able to produce. Recognised for their "ethereal sound,"Sigur Ros reminds me a great deal of Moby and Orbital . Lead vocalist, Jonsi Birgisson is able to produce an exquisite, gentle high pitched sound which goes perfectly with the classical, minimalistic sounds produced by the rest of the band.
Something to note about this band - Vonlenska. This term is used to describe the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band. Don't let this put you off however, despite not being able to sing along this will be one hell of a show to remember.
This gig promises to be one of the most surreal experiences you will ever encounter at a music gig. The response from the crowd ranges from pure anticipation and respect to awestruck and serenity. I urge you to buy tickets - I have!
