Sigur Ròs – Kjartan Sveinsson / #SR7

kjartan sveinsson

Iceland is just ruining my day today. First, Kjartan Sveinsson (above) announces he’s decided to take a break from touring / the band, and then Sigur Ròs releases this new video:

….. uh, what?

Regarding the departure of Kjartan, I mean, good for you man. You put basically half of your life into one of (if not THE) greatest band of all time, so I guess a little break is deserved. I’m just curious as to who’s gonna take his place. If I don’t hear a decent sounding tin-whistle in the near future, well I’m just gonna lose it.

Tribute to Kjartan.
