In typical abstract style, last week Sigur Rós released a teaser video entitled Inni but with no other details.
The video is artful black and white shots and live footage set to an industrial turning ambient drone. As implied, Inni is a live album and film. Here’s the announcement from the band’s website.
Inni is comprised of a double live album and seventy-five minute film of Sigur Rós’ last show before their well-documented “indefinite hiatus” at the end of 2008.
Recorded and shot over two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace at the close of the world tour around their fifth full length album, með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, Inni sees the band at the peak of their powers, captured on film for the first time as a core four-piece since they were joined by string section amiina at the start of the century. Directed by Vincent Morisset (Arcade Fire’s Miroir Noir), the film is set to debut at this year’s Venice Film Festival on September 3rd, 2011.
