Known for its unique atmospheric sounds, Icelandic ambient babble-rockers, Sigur Ros will be dropping by Singapore for a gig on 23 November 2012.
The band, which released its sixth studio album ‘Valtari’ in May is also well known for its use of ‘Vonlenska’ which is a term used to describe the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band. The album debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart and sold 26,000 copies its first week. A follow-up is expected to be completed next year.
Sigur Rós – ‘Brennisteinn’
The band recently debuted a new song, ‘Brennisteinn’ at this year's Iceland Airwaves Festival 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 Páll Dyrason locking in a brisk, extended techno surge. Metal and dancing are the last things you expect at a Sigur Rós gig; both suit them. They should keep it up."
7,000 tickets for next Friday’s gig have already been snapped up but if you haven’t got your hands on one, inSing.com will be giving away 2 pairs of tickets ($110 each). Tickets are courtesy of LAMC Productions. There will be 2 winners.
