Sigur Ros are slowly breaking their four-year hiatus with new tracks from their album “Valtari” leaking one at a time. Today the new track Varúð is streaming via premiere on BBC 6 Radio this weekend.
The last new Sigur Ros track we heard earlier this month, “Kvistur,” the B-side to the band’s Record Store Day single, was absent vocals and rhythm entirely. We’re glad to hear that Jonsi is back in action with his signature falsetto on this track, and there’s an undulating, driving percussion to keep it driving forward.
“Valtari” is out May 29.
