Music Video: “Brennisteinn” by Sigur Rós

After going four years without making a studio album, Sigur Rós finally released Valtari last May and just today announced that a new record, Kveikur, will drop this June 18. The band, now a three-piece after the departure earlier this year of Kjartan “Kjarri” Sveinsson, has a darker and more primal sound as evidenced in the track “Brennisteinn,” which translates as “sulfur.” The track’s video, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, perfectly captures the band’s heavier sonic palette.
