Sigur Rós / Björk

Dancer in the Dark Clip

Someone posted this epic clip onto Youtube performed by one of my favorite Skandinavian bands Sigur Rós joining forces with the main actress from Dancer in the Dark, Islandic singer Björk.

This stuff is epic beyond all reason and shows again the creative capacity of nordic artists. Dancer in the Dark was released 2000. The plot revolves around a cech immigrant to the U.S. in the 60s who tragically goes blind and finds herself (Björk) to be criminalized under dramatic cirumstances.

Sigur Rós provided some of the film music. There is no other band around these days that is that dense and passionate in instumental music. After watching that clip you might want to pick up the movie as I have - nothing short of stunning!
