Sigur Rós Offer New Song "Ísjaki" With Lyric Video

Sigur Rós have debuted another new song from their upcoming new album, Kveikur, and this one finds Jónsi and co. delivering as close to a potential hit single than any other in their career. Which, for a song in Icelandic, is still a long shot here in America, but not inconceivable.

“Ísjaki” debuts via a lyric video, which is good news for the relatively small percentage of Sigur Rós fans that actually speak the native tongue. But, at least it’s not a lyric video in their fake language of Hopelandic.

The new album is due on June 18 via XL Recordings, but for now give the infectious “Ísjaki,” a testdrive below.
