Sigur Ros was formed by Agust Evar Gunnarsson, Georg Holm and Jonsi. The day they formed the band, Jonsi’s sister was born, hence the name. The meaning of the name is “Victory and Rose.” Soon after formation, the band landed a contract with Bad Taste. “Von” was released in 1997 and a year later Von brigoi hit the market, which was a remix compilation. The band found mainstream success as well as international acclaim after the release of “Ágætis byrjun” in 1999. Soon the album was claimed as one of the best of its time in its genre. The band also started appearing as a supporting act on tours for bands like Radiohead.
Sigur Ros’ three tracks were featured in the famous Tom Cruise movie “Vanilla Sky.” These were Ágætis byrjun, Njósnavélin and Svefn-g-englar. The two of them were later also featured in “Queer as Folk” television series. This was followed by their music being included in television shows such as “Immortel” and “The Girl in the Café.” With the fame of their album, the band also started to be known for Jonsi’s unique vocals and also for his guitar playing that involved a cello bow. This style was unheard of before.
Sigur Ros released ‘Rimur’, an EP in 2001. It featured six songs which included poetry reciting by Steindór Andersen. Thousands of the copies of this EP hit the market and were sold within days. It was sold in white paper case that was without any pictures or words. The fans were anticipating the release of another studio album by the band which was released finally in 2002; the album was untitled as were all of its songs, yet another “unique” way of presenting things, as it has been the tradition with Sigur Ros.
Sigur Ros also experimented with Bodyscript dance production in collaboration with Arts Council England and Sadler’s Wells Theatre. In October of 2003, the band collaborated with the famous band Radiohead in composing music for Merce Cunningham’s dance performance piece named Split Side. In 2005, the band released its fifth studio album “Takk…” which means “thanks.” The album also featured their distinctive sound which is loved by the fans.
Sigur Ros went on a hiatus for four years from 2009 to 2012. In February of 2012, the band announced that they are going to make a return to the music industry by performing in several live events such as Summer Sonic Festival, Bestival, England, and in several other shows across the world. They also announced that their new studio album “Kveikur” will be released in the June of 2013. The day they announced the arrival of new album, they also released the video of their leading track by the same name. It was accompanied by an EP named “Brennisteinn.”
Over the years, Sigur Ros has established themselves as a unique band in their genre and also for their improvisational techniques. They are known as the trend setters and always bring something new to the stage and to their audience.
