"Brennisteinn", the brand new song and video from Sigur Rós

About an hour ago Sigur Rós dropped an email announcing the release of a new album called Kveikur which is being released on June 17/18. In addition they also released a new video to accompany it titled “Brennisteinn”, which takes Sigur Rós into a much harder musical territory. Like I’ve never heard Sigur Rós sound this bad ass before, it’s kind of amazing. Plus the video, directed by Andrew Huang, is also pretty gnarly. I think it’s about a ritual sacrifice and the end of the world, but you can make your own assumptions.
