Watch a New Sigur Rós Video for "Dauðalogn"

Sigur Rós’ ongoing “Mystery Film Experiment” continues with a stunning video for “Dauðalogn,” directed by Henry Jun Wah Lee.

Since the release of their most recent full-length album, Valtari, Sigur Rós has been incrementally releasing videos for each of the album’s songs, with the concept of each video coming from a different filmmaker.

Filmed in the in a southern Japanese forest, the video for “Dauðalogn” features a number of stunning scenes from nature, from a vivid panorama of the stars at night, to a foggy hillside, to the moss-covered Yakushima forest in which the video was shot.

The video provides a sharp contrast to the the series’ previous video, for “Varðeldur,” which focuses on a seemingly possessed woman convulsing around a bare room. Together, the two videos serve as a perfect representation of the variance in directorial vision Sigur Rós is aiming to capture with the Mystery Film Experiment.

Check out the video for “Dauðalogn” below.
