( ) was my introduction to Sigur Ros. I had bought a used copy at a local book store. At first listen I didn’t understand, so I ignored it. I tried a few more times afterward to get into it, but still didn’t feel it was for me. Fast forward maybe 5 years later, in 2020 a few months into the pandemic. I decided to try it again on a car ride with now my ex girlfriend, to the grocery store. When we got to the parking lot, I sat there. We listened to untitled 4, by the end of it I was in tears. It was such an emotional experience for me. Ever since that moment, it clicked. Sigur Ros is my favorite band now. I will always be grateful to this album for so many reasons, but mainly for helping me heal from emotional pain. I have struggled on and off my whole life with Depression. Sigur Ros has been a source of healing and has brought me closer to what a perceive as a higher power when I hear them. Not something that is explainable but is felt. Thank you Sigur Ros for making a beautiful record, that has helped me so much. Forever grateful!

“I clearly remember that moment, exactly like it was yesterday. I put the cd and pressed play. It was in that moment I was utterly blown away. The first 10 seconds of Vaka were a massive & beautiful confusion inside my head. It was like wandering alone in the fog. My favourite sigur ros song since then.”

I was completely blown away when I first saw “Vanilla Sky” years ago, and immediately became a fan when I heard your music play in the finale!
