You must listen to this Icelandic post-rock band. They have a ethereal sound. FUN FIND, the singer, and bowed guitarist Jónsi Pór Birgisson is also is known for his other works Jonsi. He is an amazing and talented artist. In January 2010, the band announced that will pause, and till then we are going to have to wait till 2012 for a tour and works on the next album.
"Sigur Rós" is Icelandic for "Vistory Rose". The band is named after Jónsi sister Sigurrós.
I am hoping they tour soon to America, although I would much rather go to them in Iceland and see a show there. I think that would be a much better musical experience.
