Sigur Rós - eerie

Sigur Rós is some of the most known bands from Iceland. Sigur Rós is a band of four members and the singer of the band is Jón Þór ”Jónsi” Birgisson who's creating also solo career under the name Jónsi. Sigur Rós creates its own eerie world.


(2. : so mysterious, strange, or unexpected as to send a chill up the spine <a coyote's eerie howl> <the similarities wereeerie>also : seemingly not of earthly origin <the flames cast an eerie glow> )

You can't listen Sigur Rós without falling to the song. Songs send these chills trough your spine. These songs force you to feel.

The band was founded 1994 and it got its name from Jónsi's little sister Sigurrós who was born on the day the band was founded. In 1997 band published its debut album "Von". The band came better known from its album Ágætis byrjun in 1999. Jónsi created also his own language Vonlenska that he uses in some of the songs, it sounds bit like Icelandic but is an imaginary language. These songs are sung in vonlenska: "Von", "Olsen olsen", the whole fourth album "    " which is without a name, "Hoppípolla" (partly), "Sé lest", "Mílano", "Gong" and "Andvari". The newest album is from 2008 "Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust".
