The first video off of Jónsi’s upcoming album Go has been released and boy is it a doozy. Musically the song gives me chills. It’s yet another reason to be really excited by this album. I love the way that he chopped up his voice, giving it a bird-like chirp that’s pretty rad. Everything he does always sounds so lush and full of enthusiasm, I don’t know how he does it. Plus listen for the flute part, it’s great.
As for the video it’s kind of insane and reminds me of Tori Amos… I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. It’s certainly pretty but he just looks nuts. Maybe he’ll get a part in Batman 3 as the Birdmaster?
