Sigur Rós imagination

Okay, I will admit that I have been stuck in some ennui left on the winterblahs floor. So I thought I would just sleep until summer comes and listen to Sigur Ros on permanent repeat. Fortunately, they have some dreamy looking videos to entertain as you are stuck in their fairie ring of eternal song. The latest that I have seen is a short film called Umb and it is set to their song Flugufrelsarinn. It was done by Liron Damir for his final graduate project at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. The look and feel of the video captures the ethereal and hypnotic sound and transports the viewer into a realm of melancholic reverie. It is akin to Marc Craste's video for Mum crossed with Philip Hunt's short film Ah Pook is here! Nice work, Liron!
Put the headphones on, put your feet up and get swallowed into the realm of Sigur Ros.
As for Fishbaitkate and Kiwi who just bought tix without me than void the above! Backstabbers:)
