Single Review – Sigur Rós – Óveður

The atmospheric post-rockers from Iceland are marking their return with another album in the works and a new single in ‘Óveður’. The song has shifting and reverberating beats and electronic chords which undulate and meander in tone. The vocals morph hauntingly around their musical setting and it makes for a song that is experimental, but I ever so haunting too. The strings in th background along with the growingly graceful vocals give the song an element of finesse to it’s fear-inducing quality. A marvel of a track.
