Sigur Rós – “Svefn-G-Englar”
This quartet, hailing from and inspired by Iceland, is one of those bands that force us to rethink the meaning of music. Some of their songs can barely be called that, as Sigur Rós makes widespread use of sounds that we would not readily associate with music.
They are also known to use complete silence in some parts of their songs, like here in the first long moments of Svefn-G-Englar. Sigur Rós is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy them, the experience is like opening a window into another world.
