Sigur Rós Collection
This is a tribute dedicated to the Icelandic Post-Rock / Alternative / Experimental band SIGUR RÓS.

They're one of my favourite bands — if not my favourite — but I mainly collect the ( ) album, the ( ) (a.k.a. Njósnavelin) single, the Untitled #1 (a.k.a. Vaka) single and every other release on which songs of this releases are released on plus usually the first pressing of every release of them on vinyl.


Sigur Rós consists of Jón Þór "Jónsi" Birgisson (lead vocals, guitars, bowed guitar, keyboards, harmonica, banjo, bass guitar), Georg "Goggi" Holm (bass guitar, glockenspiel, toy piano, keyboards, backing vocals) and Orri Páll Dýrason (drums, percussion, samples, keyboards). The band was originally formed by Jónsi, Georg and Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson (drums, percussion) in 1994. When Ágúst left the band after the recording of Ágætis Byrjun in 1998, he was replaced by Orri. Kjartan "Kjarri" Sveinsson (synthesizers, keyboards, piano, organs, programming, guitars, flute, tin whistle, oboe, banjo, backing vocals) joined in 1998, recorded five albums before leaving the band in 2013.

The band's name is Icelandic wordplay: while the individual words Sigur and Rós mean, respectively, Victory and Rose, "Victory Rose" wouldn't be grammatically correct; the name is actually borrowed from Jónsi's younger sister Sigurrós Elín, who was born a few days before the band was formed, and then split into two words.

Some of their lyrics are in "Vonlenska". Vonlenska is the non-literal language that forms the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band on some songs, in particular by Jónsi. It is also commonly known by the English translation of its name, Hopelandic. It takes its name from "Von", a song on Sigur Rós' debut album Von where it was first used. However, not all Sigur Rós songs are in Hopelandic; many are sung in Icelandic.
