Sigur Rós

Hey guys, I just wanted to draw your attention to a band named Sigur Rós. They're an Icelandic group (pretty much the most popular musical act from Iceland with the exception of Björk) with a very melodic sound. Their music is honestly some of the most beautiful stuff I have ever heard, and that's saying a lot. An interesting point about the band that's worth mentioning is that while the vocals sound like they are being sung in Icelandic, they really aren't being sung in any language at all. Although the singer draws somewhat on the Icelandic language, he is really singing in an unintelligible made-up language that he has referred to as "gibberish." I think it's nothing short of absolute bliss for the ears. Have a listen, and let me know what you think!
