My favourite track off of the great new Sigur Rós album Valtari just received a video treatment. The video for Varúð, like the previous video, is a very static feeling video. An Icelandic looking painterly landscape that subtly changes as the song swells past the choral piece. More and more characters then develop and release light as the song explodes in Sigur Rós fashion.
A minimalist approach to allow the power of the song to dominate. This is one of my favourite songs of the year, so expect it to be near the top of the year end list. And anticipate a few more videos for the rest of the album as this is part of a mystery film experiment.
