Sigur Ros Tickets
Sigur Ros TicketsSigur Ros is a band from Iceland that's known for lead singer Jonsi's falsetto voice, avant-garde writing and instrumentals, and ethereal melodies. Currently, the band consists of Jonsi Birgisson and Georg Holm. The band's name was inspired by Birgisson's little sister, Sigurros. The band subsequently changed the spelling to Sigur Ros, which creates a bit of wordplay in Icelandic: "Sigur" and "Ros" mean "victory" and "rose," respectively. The band has won numerous awards throughout its existence.
HopelandicAlthough Sigur Ros sometimes sings in Icelandic, much of the band's music is in a made-up language called "Hopelandic" in English (Vonlenska in Icelandic). The idea behind the sound is that the "words" are literally meaningless, but because of this, listeners can make up their own meaning to the songs. Hopelandic has been likened to a jazz singer's scat work. The "language" lacks grammar, and there are no obvious boundaries between words.
