If you watched the film “We Bought a Zoo”, the original soundtrack in the end of this film may impress you. The bright piano with ethereal voice accompany with the end of the story perfectly.
This soundtrack is “Hoppípolla,” by Sigur Rós. Although this Icelandic post-rock band may be not unknown around the world, Sigur Rós is also not walking on the mainstream of music.
Sigur Rós has been active since 1994. It has two times member changes. Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson, the drummer, joined in the band in 1994 and left in 1999; Kjartan Sveinsson, the keyboardist, joined in 1998 and left in 2013.
Currently, Sigur Rós maintains three founder members — Jónsi, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason. They respond for different part of works.
From early time to present, Sigur Rós has released ten albums. Every album presents this band’s different eras with ideologies.
Besides “Hoppípolla,” The first soundtrack that I listened from Sigur Rós was “Sigur Rós,” which is collected in its first album “Von.” This soundtrack is the masterpiece that Sigur Rós made and also represented the best of this band.
Meanwhile, we still could get many amazing soundtracks from other Sigur Rós’s albums.
Today, I introduce Sigur Rós to you and hope you will enjoy it.
