Published Apr 24, 2013Icelandic stargazers Sigur Rós will release Kveikur on June 18 through XL Recordings, and now they've given fans another taste of the impending collection with a lyric video for "Ísjaki."
The track is anchored by thundering drums, which are overlaid with a dreamscape of cinematic strings, angelic vocals and a few subtle hints of squalling dissonance. The accompanying visuals are so dark and shadowy that we can't really tell what's going on, while the lyrics will allow you to sing along in an unfamiliar tongue.
