LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce acclaimed Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós will perform in Singapore for the first time ever. Known for its ethereal sound and lead singer Jónsi’s falsetto voice, along with melodic, classical, experimental, and minimalist elements the band will perform at Fort Canning Park on November 23, 2012.

Sigur Rós returned with their sixth studio album, Valtari in May, 2012. Taken together, the eight songs feel like an alternative musical path the band didn’t take after 2002’s untitled ( ) album. Bereft of formal structures, and for large stretches of time more atmospheric than songs, the work – which the band have described as sounding “like an avalanche in slow motion” – offer a counterpoint to Sigur Rós’ steady yet unconscious migration towards public acceptance. In English, Valtari translates as 'steamroller.'
