tellusyourfinalwish asked: So, I saw you posted a song by Sigur Ros earlier today, I went and youtubed them , and I hadn't realized they did one of my favourite songs (bad I know) that I had never been able to find! So thank you so much for that! :D and for opening my eyes to the amazingness that is Sigur Ros! <3
unfiltr asked: Do Icelanders get tired of how popular Sigur Rós is elsewhere, or do they generally think their international success is a point of pride? What are some other current bands/solos that are really popular in Iceland?
I think it is generally a point of pride as you say. Sigur Rós is of course not everyone’s cup of tea, but people have a general idea of what they as well as the other Icelandic bands that are successful abroad. Icelanders are generally very interested when Iceland is noticed abroad. If foreign news media make a slight mention of Iceland, it’s usually big news in Iceland.
