Sigur Rós are an Icelandic post rock band from Reykjavík, they have been active since 1994. Known for their ethereal sound, frontman Jónsi Birgisson’s falsetto vocals and the use of bowed guitar,their music is also known for its incorporation of classical and minimalist aesthetic elements. The band are named after Jónsi’s sister Sigurrós Elín. Svefn-G-Englar, their first release to be distributed outside of their native country, was hailed as NME’s Single of the Week during September of 1999, launching a press hype in the UK and in the US. The “Ný Battery” single was issued in early 2000, the band’s breakout year. British independent Fat Cat began distributing the band, stretching their reach beyond Icelanders and rabid journalists. April of the same year, live dates in England with Godspeed You! Black Emperor were capped off by an appearance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival, and they also opened several dates of Radiohead’s European tour before the year’s end. They went on a hiatus in 2008 but came back in 2011 when they played the Coachella Festival.
