The audience of the Fox Theatre, Oakland was in for a treat on 9th April, 2017. Sigur Rós stunned the fans by playing them a bewitching unreleased track called ‘Niður’.

Bow and guitar in hand, lead vocalist, Jónsi led the performance. His renowned falsetto matched perfectly with the track’s haunting sound. The dreamlike track is from the Icelandic band’s upcoming eighth studio album. A fan was able to capture it and upload it on to The quality and sound is incredible.

‘Óveður’ is the only recorded track off the new album. The fact that it was released a year ago goes to show that the band is probably taking their time with this record-perhaps to perfect it.

Both ‘Óveður’ and ‘Niður’ possess the same dark quality, perhaps indicating the direction and theme of the new album.

Sigur Rós are currently on a world wide Spring 2017 tour. Below is a list of their astounding live shows.
