It’s been so long since I wrote about anything music-related, the reason being that I haven’t been hunting down and downloading any. I haven’t had time, but the music I downloaded in the time I did have was really pathetic. I used to like RnB and rap. Not so much anymore. Everything sounds so fake. That’s not music, it’s an ode to your ego. I don’t care how many cars you have, how much you can swag or how many b*tches you can bag. (Ha! That was completely unintentional!) Out of a few hundred songs I directly put on my iPod, I found only a handful that I liked.
That said, I want to call you attention to the most amazing band on the planet. I’ve heard a lot of their old songs, but this one happened to escape my notice till recently. As soon as I heard it and saw the accompanying music video, I KNEW I had to share it with as many people as I sould possible reach out to.
Sigur Ros. Their music moves me like no other. I mentioned a song of their’s in an old post of mine, Meet Music Me. They make evergreen music, the kind you can never tire of. Pure emotion. Here’s a little bit about the language used in the song.
Despite the unintelligible words, the voice and music create this amazing harmony that literally carries your soul away. This, my friends, is what music should be like. With no other purpose than to soothe you and make you happy from within.
Watch the music video. I don’t think it’s the official music video, but it will, quite literally, blow you away. I never thought mushroom clouds could be so beautiful.
