dreaming of Iceland …

I posted this on my hiking blog yesterday. One of the most charming music videos I’ve ever seen.

I tried and failed to find a very inexpensive flight from Eastern Canada to Iceland. Unfortunately it’s very high season there.

This evocative music video inspired me.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Exotic. Ethereal. Stark. … And very weird.

If you’re looking for inspiration to visit watch Glósóli by Icelandic band Sigur Rós. They are the second most famous band out of Iceland.

That’s Iceland.

The music reminds many of Arcade Fire from Canada.

But this is sigur rós, a rock band from Iceland.

glósóli, shot in iceland in august 2005. the video is directed by icelanders arni & kinski and features a cast of icelandic children. …

read an interview with the video’s cinematographer Chris Soos – takk… glósóli video
