Sigur Ros, the thinker music

There’s something about music that brings you back to places.  It’s like a single song is something dropped along a long hallway creating a bright vivid captivating echo.  There’s something spiritually memorable about the enlightening sound behind the music of Sigur Ros.  How the soft sparse vocals ride so perfectly over the calm carefully molded riffs.  Sigur Ros is nothing short of touching the soft inner pedals of an orchid, or watching the wind carry a feather gently to the ground.

Most likely, anyone will notice that the lyrics from Sigur Ros are, indeed, not in English.  The band originated from Ice Land.  The band itself is composed of guitars, vocals, bass, drums, and keyboard.  Frontman Jon Por (Jonsi) Birgisson is the front man shaping the guitar and providing his ethereal vocal talent.  Somehow, keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson who later joined the band Sigur Ros, is the only band member with any prior musical training.

    • Wow, I like the sound of that. It’s too bad I’m at the house of this girl I’m dating, or else I’d be totally on it right now. I feel kind of guilty that I woke up in the middle of the night and decided to go gallivanting around the internet, when I should be cozying up next to her.
