About Sigur Ros
Formed in 1994, this experimental Icelandic group first came to mainstream attention with the release of their second album, Agaetis Byrjun, and in particular the single Svefn-g-englar.
Combining the traditional instruments of the rock band with some novel playing techniques, they manage to create an incredibly fragile, complex and unique sound, with a sparseness and atmosphere that evokes strong imagery of their homeland.
The band's third album, cryptically entitled ( ), contained the song Untitled 4, which many will recognise as the music which tracked Tom Cruise's gravity-defying leap in the film Vanilla Sky.
More recently the band recorded and performed original music for a modern dance piece, Split Sides, which was produced by legendary New York choreographer Merce Cunningham.
