Sigur Ros: Live from Brixton // Review for Dots & Dashes

dotsandashes:

‘Peeping out from behind a mesh of xylophones, organs, percussion and pianos, stands Jónsi – blinking before us. Scattered across the stage, the dim flicker of lightbulb filaments hoisted high above the band on thin stands stick flag-like in the blurred middle ground located between living room comfort and stadium spectacular. And it is under the blue orb of an ocean glow during Sæglópur that the band really quicken into swing as the crowd, still spellbound, do nothing but gaze up – mouths naturally agape – as the sound twists and contorts itself between softened piano melodies and crashing cymbals.’

Dots & Dashes review the first of Sigur Rós’ three sold out O2 Academy Brixton shows.
