Sigur Rós, 15 août 2016 20:00, Edinburgh Playhouse
Epic and ethereal, electrifying and elemental, Icelandic post-rock giants Sigur Rós create songs of transcendental beauty and overwhelming power.
They make a very rare visit to Scotland to take over the Edinburgh Playhouse for two special International Festival concerts, revealing brand new unreleased songs and an innovative new staging.
Across their seven acclaimed albums they have forged an unforgettable music that overwhelms audiences with its intensity. Combining soaring falsetto vocals from Þón or (aka Jónsi) Birgisson, visceral bowed guitar and slow-building, relentless energy, they produce music from menacing tectonic soundscapes to unforgettable pop tunes. Playing live, they are a primal force that overwhelms the audience with awe and wonder.
