SIGUR ROS have gone some way to redressing (or should that be undressing) the balance with an X-rated video featuring a squad of pasty-white naturists jiggling their breasts and willies around a forest. All done very tastefully, of course.For far too long scantily clad ladies have been the domain of hip-hop and R’n’B music. Now
The video has been made for Gobbledigook, the opening track on the band’s forthcoming album Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust – cutely translated from Icelandic as With A Buzz In Our Ears We Play Endlessly.
As for the song itself, it’s yet another work of absolute genius with unconventional (for Sigur Ros) tribal drumming and some skewed acoustic strumming as these young wizards continue to peerlessly push the boundaries of rock music into uncharted realms of originality. Nobody makes three-minute pop quite like this lot.
