I’ve been listening to Valtari, the most recent album from Sigur Rós a lot lately. I wasn’t a huge fan of it when it first came out but it’s slowly grown on me, and honestly I think it’s up their with Ágætis byrjun and Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. I thought it would be nice to feature a video from the album, which also happens to be directed by Ryan McGinley. The song is Varúð, one of the most haunting from the album. McGinley manages to turn the song into a soundtrack for a girl with a shimmering golden wig skipping with reckless abandon through the streets of Manhattan. It’s not a deep concept, but it’s certainly beautiful.
