Video: Sigur Rós – Fjögur Píanó

This video technically came out yesterday, but I saved it so it could be apart of “New Music Tuesday”.

If you haven’t seen this video or even heard about it (due to it’s high profile starring actor) you really need to watch it.

While this video may seem confusing in every sense, I suggest watching it a few more times with an open mind. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The subtle wordless song only enhances every detail and emotion brought on by the visuals of this video.

The video, Har’el suggests, “is about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle.” And the dead butterflies festooning the bedroom that imprisons the couple? The director says they symbolize “very beautiful things that die very fast,” the experiences or emotions that couple share ad nauseam. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else,” Har’el says. “For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that.” –(Taken from The Wall Street Journal)

And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is actor Shia Labeouf starring in this video with actress,  Denna Thomsen.
