Watch: Sigur Rós - “Varūð” Video
Of Earth and Stone
Sigur Rós have premiered the second-to-last music video from their ongoing "Mystery Film Experiment." Featuring the Valtari track "Varúð" and directed by Björn Flóki, the clip seemingly follows a young girl exploring landscapes of industrial ruin and beautiful forest greenery, leading to a small twist ending that bring the two worlds together.
According to Flóki, "When I listen to 'Varúð' I feel this overlap and struggle between sadness and beauty, between darkness and light. An overwhelming feeling of being buried in darkness but being just barely able to escape into the light, if you try hard enough. This is the feeling I’ve tried to bring to the video."
