On Aug. 11, the acclaimed post-rock band Sigur Ros posted a mysterious video entitled “Inni” on their official website. The video shows gritty, black-and-white footage of the band onstage. Featuring the kind of musical contrast the band is known for, the teaser’s soundtrack is full of moments of both buzzing industrial clutter and sweet childlike bliss. Although it appears to be a kind of live concert video, Sigur Ros has never been known for doing things like everyone else when it comes to multimedia projects. According to the official Venice Days website, Inni will debut at the film festival taking place on Aug. 31 and was directed by Vincent Morrisset, the man responsible for Arcade Fire’s great behind-the-scenes video, “Miroir Noir.”
Although rumos and about a new album have circulated, the band has been on hiatus while frontman Jónsi Birgissondf has been kickstarting his solo career. Inni will be the first officially released activity from Sigur Ros since their 2008 album, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.
