Synaesthesia, anyone? The glorious sounds of Sigur Ros are visualised in their debut film Heima (meaning ‘at home’ or ‘hometown’). The documentary-style film intimately chronicles the band’s tour of their native Iceland, and in doing so gives a voice to their magical and hauntingly isolated home. Performances from all four of their albums are featured, as well two new tracks, one of which was filmed inside an abandoned herring oil tank. Check out the trailer and then twiddle your hearing aids in anticipation of its November release. [see also Remix for Iceland]
