Sigur Rós have premiered a new video for the track “Varúð” off their latest LP Valtari. The second installment in the Valtari mystery film experiment, “Varúð” animates a stark northern landscape in a style resembling time-lapse photography. Water ripples, snow falls and recedes, and tiny figures line the rocky cliffs.
The “Varúð” video was directed by Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir. Upcoming works in the series, which invited directors to create visuals based on Valtari‘s songs with no input from the band, will be directed by John Cameron Mitchell, Ramin Bahrani, Ryan McGinley, and more.
