Sigur Rós are alien; their music, their aesthetic, their live shows, all drenched in an ethereal otherworldliness that fits the band’s extraterrestrial nature. “Brennisteinn” is from a very different Sigur Rós world, stripped of their sweeping strings, awash in low-end reverb, crashing snares and Jonsi’s angelic croon. The track is breathtaking, from a group who practically traffic in said breathlessness – but the way they go about it here is entirely different. They toss away all their previous musical trappings, turning their guitars up to 11 and mercilessly aiming for your throat.
