Directed by Huang, who has also worked with Björk, 'Brennisteinn' is the first offering from the band to feature Sigur Rós' as a trio, following the departure of multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson. The epic eight-minute video showcases the talents of Huang, alongside The Mill+ team.
"We had the honor of creating Sigur Ros's first official performance music video ever," says music video director, Andrew Thomas Huang. "Our task was to create a piece that radically breaks from their previous work, yet also expands upon the existing legacy of their music."
'Brennisteinn' is inspired by a raw energy that the band is drawing from….not new energy, but energy that had been lying dormant from the beginning waiting to erupt.
"I was thrilled about the opportunity to work with such a talented up and coming director on such a cool music video," says Mill producer Jess Ambrose. "Andy's vision from start to finish for this video was creative and refreshing and above all, unique."
