Icelandic Proms And Culture

On the back of a much-praised October 24 BBC Electric Proms performance at London’s Cecil Sharp House, Icelandic ethereal rockers Sigur Rós became only the second musical artist to be given an entire 30-minute edition of the network’s "Culture Show."

Screened on BBC2 at 11:50 p.m. November 7, the film was made in Iceland and during the act’s recent visit to the U.K.

It’s said to be "an intimate exploration of the four members of Sigur Rós and the music they make," featuring interviews, performances and clips from their critically acclaimed film "Heima."

The film has been receiving rave reviews in papers including the UK’s Mail On Sunday, which described it as "Utterly entrancing, wholly captivating." The Times called it "Hypnotic, transcendent grandeur" and The Observer said it was "Staggeringly beautiful."

"Sigur Rós make the greatest atmospheric music ever," said NME, while Financial Times described the Icelanders as "Epic in scale and eerily powerful."
