Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Sigur Rós, Starálfur.
How this 4-piece Icelandic band escaped Bossy’s attention for over a decade Bossy will never know, but they have certainly crawled into her consciousness now.
Known for their lead singer’s falsetto and dreamy arrangements that straddle many different musical genres, their tunes have found their way onto soundtracks over the years, such as Vanilla Sky, The Life Aquatic, and even 24.
Unlike many other highly produced bands which Bossy places in her own made-up category she refers to as Hypnotica, these guys can actually play their tracks live.
This song, off of Bossy’s favorite record Ágætis Byrjun, well, it just makes Bossy go belly up. In many ways it’s like U2 meets Aaron Copeland.
