Sigur Ros - "Klippa" Video

Icelandic majesty-rockers Sigur Rós have posted a new video called “Klippa,” which mysteriously consists of three people in a dark room, cutting up clothes and slowly waltzing. All this somehow has something to do with INNI, the band’s forthcoming live album and DVD, but don’t ask me how. The band never shows up, there’s no live footage, and the only musical accompaniment is a very quiet ambient droney sort of thing in the background. Sarah Hopper directs. Watch it below, I guess.

Be honest. You’re not entirely happy with how you spent those last five minutes, are you?

  1. what the fuck did I watch

  2. Honestly, I don’t feel cheated. We’re talking about Sigur Ros here. I want cryptic expression drowned in spooky reverb and spacious, atmospheric strangeness that is as far away from corporate porn pop music as possible. Done.

    • Exactly. This is why those of us Sigurheads love them so, for their cryptic strangeness that is so intriguing. If you’re bored by this, you’re not a true fan. . . .I own their dvd ‘Heima’ which has many moments on it like this & is purely delightful.

  3. Since you were so enthusiastic about it, I’ll definitely give it a watch. But seriously, what was that?

  4. I don’t feel I can give my unbiased opinion because of the way it was presented in the article.

  5. He’s a magician!

  6. Didn’t you guys get it, really? This short film shows the simplicity of love, given and found in the smallest gestures. I’m looking forward to know more about INNI.

  7. “All this somehow has something to do with INNI, the band’s forthcoming live album and DVD, but don’t ask me how”

    They’re seaming together the live outfits.

  8. Maybe i’m reading into all this a bit too much, and I hope i’m wrong, but what I got from this was a very cryptic message that the band are amicably calling it quits and that INNI is our last release from them.

    Like I said, I hope i’m wrong, and I may be way off the mark.
