as 2 years of touring across two album draws to a close, we thought it was as good a time as any to look back at some of the things that have happened in this busiest period of sigur ros’s life. maybe it was foolhardy in retrospect, but never before have sigur ros broken the 3-year album cycle, to release one album (valtari) in the summer of 2012, and another (kveikur) in the summer of 2013. we thank you for your indulgence and trust you’ve been enjoying both records for equal but different reasons. of course, there were extentuating circumstances. valtari turned out to be the last album the band would make with departing keyboard player kjartan sveinsson. an elegaic collection befitting a farewell to a friend, it nevertheless gave the impetus to create a polar-opposite follow up, one that swapped oblique reflection for direct power (a reductive, but essentially accurate précis).
