Sigur Ros‘ latest visual, for Valtari track ‘Fjögur Píanó’ (‘Four Pianos’), stars Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf and Denna Thomsen.
Featuring interpretive dance, drawing on nude bodies, mild violence and some truly tripped out imagery, the video is both beautiful and bizarre. But what does it all mean? “[It’s] about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle,” Har’el told the Wall Street Journal. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else.”
The video was written and directed by Alma Har’el and was created as part of Sigur Rós’s ongoing Mystery Film Experiment series.
The Icelandic act’s sixth studio album Valtari was released last month and reached number eight on the UK chart and seven on the US Billboard 200.
