23 Days of Sasquatch: Day 1 – Sigur Rós

With a falsetto that can challenge the likes of Justin Vernon, Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi pulls the sounds of this Icelandic post-rock band all together. While the band focuses on powerful instrumentals, their vocals are memorable to say the least. Jónsi often sings in Icelandic or Vonlenska (“Hopelandish”), a non-literal language, lacking grammar, meaning, and even distinct words. So chances are, you won’t understand Sigur Rós’s lyrics. Their passionate message, whoever they aim to reach to, is still tangible in their music.
