Listen: Sigur Ros – Kvistur

Non-Valtari cut emerges online

Recent Sigur Ros Record Store Day B-side ‘Kvistur’ has emerged online – listen to it now.

Ah, Record Store Day. In theory: miss it, and you miss out. In reality: miss it, and you can catch up online.

Sigur Ros recently completed their new album ‘Valtari’ and were left with enough to piece together a Record Store Day release. ‘Ekki Múkk’ was released on Saturday (April 21st) and almost immediately sold out, with the single featuring the non-album B-side ‘Kvistur’.

A moody, atmospheric, almost ambient piece ‘Kvistur’ is all texture, with Sigur Ros seeming to dwell on sound rather than songcraft.

Emerging online, you can listen to it below.
