Description:

The band recently debuted a new song, "Brennisteinn" at this year's Iceland Airwaves Festival. See You Tube to watch footage of this incredible track, which was greeted with immediate praise upon being posted online.

"'Brennisteinn' ("Brimstone") was violent, rude and irresistible: slow, mourning rock with bass tones so low and loud they rattled the floor, cut with a stubbornly delicate romanticism" said Rolling Stone's David Fricke about the new track. "But just as the end seemed near and you expected the band to stomp off into their usual ether, the rhythm changed for the faster, with bassist Georg Holm and drummer Orri Pall Dyrason locking in a brisk, extended techno surge. Metal and dancing are the last things you expect at a Sigur Ros gig; both suit them. They should keep it up."
