So how would they themselves describe their music? "I think the words that come to my mind are, like, 'organic', maybe," Birgisson eventually concedes. "There's something quite natural about it, and we think a lot about soundscapes when we are doing it.

But it's always hard for us to describe how we sound."Sigur Ros in The Independent

They are truly one of my fave bands of now. If you missed it... you can order it here while stocks last.
