NSFW: Who Knows What Is Happening In The New Sigur Rós Video?

sigurrosfjogurpianoscreencap

Sigur Rós is a “love ‘em or hate ‘em” kind of band. Their songs are often very slow and, in a way, uneventful. However, another way to look at them is that they are reflections of our own emotions. We’re not going to experience radical changes from one second to the next (well, this sometimes happens, but it’s not the average). Rather, we dwell in our emotions, let them wash over us and take as long as they need in order to leave or dissipate. That’s how I personally view the band.

Another trademark of the band is that they release incredibly heavy music videos, ones that require afterthought and empathy. And nothing has changed with “Fjögur Píanó”, their newest video, which comes from their latest album Valtari. Rather, this might be one of their most obscure videos yet. Starring Shia Labeouf (who does full frontal nudity in this video) and Denna Thomsen, the video is an artistic view of a failing relationship (my opinion). Beautifully shot but also quite confusing, you can watch the NSFW video below.

Note: You have to be logged into YouTube and older than 18 in order to watch the video.

    Full frontal side nudity. He has a nice dick. Not to big. LOL Sorry I’ve been holding out on the dick jokes all day today. The video was fucked. I loved when he lost it :) sigur ros are a very good, but I can’t listen to them all the time, I norm listen to them when I am very depress, or when I need to write poems and stuff :)

      Listening to Sigur Rós when depressed sounds like an AWFUL idea, haha! Talk about exacerbating things!
