Sigur Rós: INNI
On 11/08/2011, melodramatic soundscape mastermind ensemble Sigur Rós released a mysterious trailer entitled “INNI.” The clip is an etherial and elegant monochromatic journey, featuring what looks to be recent live footage of the band. This is the first new material from the Icelandic outfit since the release of the album hvarf-heim and film Heima in 2007. Nevertheless, frontman and primary writer Jón Þór Birgisson (aka Jónsi) has been far from idle, taking time to invest into two notable side projects; Riceboy Sleeps and more prominently his own solo material Go. With hopes held high and fingers crossed, the enchanting Vertov-esque teaser means a new album/film project logically followed by touring.
This project was set to be released on the 8th of this month, but is now available, at least in Australia.
So get it from iTunes or your local JB HiFi.
