Quick Overview

Kveikur is the band's first release on XL Recordings worldwide. The record, which was self-produced by the three members of Sigur Rós: Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason, sees the band shifting towards a more direct, aggressive sound.

Details

Icelandic post-rock mainstays Sigur Rós return with their first release since the departure of influential member Kjartan Sveinsson. Kveikur is their seventh record and the trio take a more aggressive approach than on their last orchestral-inspired outing Valtari. The overly distorted bass and Jónsi Birgisson's signature cello-bowed guitar sounds and angelic vocals feature heavily on opening track "Brennisteinn," which sets the tone for the album. During the promotion of the record, the band featured in popular TV show The Simpsons, providing an interpretation of the theme alongside a score of original music for the episode.
