Sigur Rós Heima Trailer

Sigur Rós is a band from Iceland. This coming November, they’ll be releasing a live DVD called Heima which chronicles their return home over several live shows. I just saw the trailer for the DVD today (above), and it’s exquisite. I’ve never been to Iceland, so I can’t speak first-handedly, but the outdoor footage in the trailer is absolutely gorgeous and very surreal. Many of the moon-like landscapes were shot at a live show performed at the Ásbyrgi canyon, 2 hours east of the second-largest Icelandic town of Akureyri. If the trailer is any indication of the feature-length production, I’ll be ordering the DVD (though I suppose it helps that I’m a fan of the band as well). Regardless, the footage is really re-sparking my interest in a trip to Iceland.
