The Icelandic ethereal crooners turn indie pop craftsmen. With Sigur Ros' 5th studio album those used to the glacial soundscapes of past efforts will be surprised, yet pleased in the new direction of tighter song writing and production. Creating a great pop record rather than the cinematic pieces to further develop their sound. Not completely losing their roots you can expect at least two tracks of epic proportions just as the 9 minute track 'Festival' proves. The album will please long time fans and newcomers alike. 2x12" with a beautiful Ryan McGinley photo used as the artwork.
