Ekki Mukk [music video]
Celina Murphy, 04 Apr 2012
The ever-exquisite Jonsi Birgisson has compared the new Sigur Ros album to “an avalanche in slow motion,” and that’s just the feeling you get listening to the first single, ‘Ekki Mukk’, a rambling, ethereal and increasingly epic number that perfectly fits in with the Icelandic wunderkind’s stunning back catalogue. I can’t really say anything about the accompanying music video without giving the game away, so I’ll leave it at this; take yourself to a computer and a quiet room pronto, and for the love of god, don’t neglect the HD button. sigur-ros.co.uk

Sigur Ros’ songs have a tendency to go on way too long, but the group’s peaks are such that we must cherish them, flaws and all.

Silencing a 1200-strong audience with little more than a glockenspiel is certainly no mean feat, but that’s the sort of band that Sigur Rós are.

Takk, their major label debut, comes across almost as conventional. There are proper songs! With names, and lyrics – conveyed in Icelandic yet recognizably of this universe. Have Sigur Ros gone normal on us?
