Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi's solo album - Go (2010)

 

Sigur Rós frontman, Jónsi, recently announced that his debut solo album, 'Go', will be out 5th April. The first single is 'Go Do' and it kinda reminds me of a Joanna Newsom song mixed with a little Animal Collective. The official video is due to be unveiled sometime this week, but for now here's the track:


Also recently unveiled was 'Boy Lilikoi', a kind of Disneyesque song that also brings to mind Animal Collective. Maybe Disneyesque songs are the new 'new-rave'? Instead of wearing neon colours, people might start rocking animal parts, like ears or a tail? Or maybe just t-shirts with Disney characters on? The track itself sounds pretty cool though. Having said that, both songs still sound very much like Sigur Rós songs, only happier more childlike.


If those two tracks aren't enough, you can also watch 8 behind the scenes videos on Jónsi's website:
