'Ekki Múkk', a new track and video from Sigur Rós

Yesterday, Sigur Rós released a brand new track and music video called Ekki Múkk in advance of their upcoming album, Valtari. It’s been nearly 4 years since their last album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, perhaps because Jónsi has been busy with side projects, as I’m sure other band members have been as well.

This new track is nice, a slow and steady 7 minutes of Sigur Rós-ness. That may also be it’s downfall, as it seems like something Jónsi could have made in his sleep. It’s not bad, but it’s not original nor epic feeling like the tracks from Ágætis byrjun. I started writing this post as an “OMG SIGUR ROS” but after listening to the song 7 times on repeat it’s just kinda… flat. Here’s hoping the rest of the album is more exciting. Here’s the tracklist:

1. Ég Anda
2. Ekki Múkk??
3. Varúð??
4. Rembihnútur
5. Dauðalogn
6. Varðeldur
7. Valtari
8. Fjögur Píanó

    this video is utterly breathtaking in its absolute simplicity and purity. it reminds you of the power of simple beauty without the distractions of technique and gloss. this piece is not simply a video accompaniment to a work of music. it is, in itself, a work of art.

    It sounds like this is just Jónsi. None of the sweet drums and instrumentation that make the best Sigur Rós tracks.
    Did the band leave or something?
