Sigur Rós



Rós

The name was inspired by that of his little sister, Sigur Rós (the Rose of Victory) born on the same day. The legend narrates that in six hours they recorded their first single Fljúgðu, which was heard by Björk, who had the piece published in a compilation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Icelandic independence. The first volume Von (hope) goes back to 1997, the product of three years of work, and critics define it as a kind of ambient journey across Iceland's snowcapped volcanoes. The long-awaited Ágætis byrjun was released in June 1999: a masterpiece that consecrates Sigur Rós. At the end of 2007, with the producer of Nine Inch Nails, the band recorded their fifth album with collections and re-edits of previous numbers. The launching of the album in June Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust: (With a hum in our ears we shall play endlessly) marked a turning point compared with previous records: fewer strings and more guitars and a chorus of young people and an orchestra comprising of 67 instruments.
