Review of Vio spilum endalaust Single by Sigur Ros

Single review for Við spilum endalaust from Sigur Ros.

Released in June 2008, Sigur Ros' fifth studio album 'Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust' revealed a shifting musical direction for the Icelandic 'post-rockers'. Sharper and snappier than its predecessors, its twelve songs represented a pop-driven departure from the elusively ethereal Sigur Ros signature sound.

This, the third single taken from the album, is a perfect case-in-point. The rising major-key bass line, delicate falsetto, triumphant chorus melody, glorious fanfare trumpets and syncopated drumbeat all point to this being the best Coldplay song Chris Martin has never written. Its impossible to tell whether the lyrics are sung in Icelandic or in the mythical, nonsensical 'Hopelandic' that singer Jonsi Birgisson often reverts to (don't ask). Nevertheless, the album was well-received and so too shall this be. Expect to hear it on a BBC advert very soon.
