[WATCH] SIGUR ROS: ‘Varúð’ (Ryan McGinley Version)

Sigur Rós have been steadily releasing new clips in their Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, and the latest is a beautifully-shot piece by New York photographer Ryan McGinley. “This piece is my poem to New York City,” McGinley wrote. “I wanted to bring a childhood innocence to the streets, through a character whose own light and wonder effects the world around her. I’m always interested in an atmosphere where dreams and reality mingle on equal terms.” His video is for the Valtari track ‘Varúð’, which was previously given a different video treatment, and the golden hour photography here sure is a sight to behold. The group also released an Arni & Kinski-directed video for ‘Rembihnútur’ and another clip for ‘Eg Anda‘ (this time by Ramin Bahrani) last month, and you can find both of those below.
