music sundays

"the nothing song" (njósnavélin) by icelandic band sigur rós. this song was featured in "vanilla sky", one of the most enigmatic movies i've ever watched. i've watched sigur rós live at the hammersmith apollo once, and they were truly magnificent.

hope you'll enjoy all 7mins and 56secs of it. and if you're craving for more "vanilla sky", there's also the hauntingly beautiful "elevator beat" by nancy wilson.



  1. Wasn't familiar with them at all until I saw them live at Electric Picnic here in Ireland last year...breathtaking, and so well-styled too.


  2. i was one of them who didn't really get the film. this number reminds me of Kid A. the OST is gorgeous.

  3. If you like vanilla Sky I hope you've seen Open Your Eyes (Abre Los Ojos), the Spanish original? It's by Alejandro Amenabar. his first, low-budget film, Tesis was also great.

  4. sigur ros did a very good job!
    also a good song!!!

    "Vidrar Vel Til Loftharasa"


what's he wearing?
