Last year, in the endless magic hour of the Icelandic summer, Sigur Rós played a series of concerts around their homeland. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the worlds shyest and least understood bands captured live in their natural habitat.
The culmination of more than a year spent promoting their hugely successful Takk album around the world, the Icelandic tour was free to all-comers and went largely unannounced. Playing in deserted fish factories, outsider art follies, far-flung community halls, sylvan fields, darkened caves and the hoofprint of Odins horse, Sleipnir*, the band reached an entirely new spectrum of the Icelandic population; young and old, ardent and merely quizzical, entirely by word-of-mouth.
The question of the way Sigur Róss music relates to, and is influenced by, their environment has been reduced to a journalistic cliché about glacial majesty and fire and ice, but there is no doubt that the band are inextricably linked to the land in which they were forged. And the decision to film this first-ever Sigur Rós film in Iceland was, in the end, ineluctable.
Shot using a largely Icelandic crew (to minimise Eurovision-style scenic-wonder overload), Heima - which means both at home and homeland - is an attempt to make a film every bit as big, beautiful and unfettered as a Sigur Rós album. As such it was always going to be something of a grand folie, but one, which taking in no fewer than 15 locations around Iceland (including the countrys largest ever concert at the bands Reykjavik homecoming), is never less than epic in its ambition.
Material from all four of the bands albums is featured, including many rare and notable moments. Among these are a heart-stopping rendition of the previously unreleased Gitardjamm, filmed inside a derelict herring oil tank in the far West Fjords; a windblown, one-mic recording of Vaka, shot at a dam protest camp subsequently drowned by rising water; and first time acoustic versions of such rare live beauties as Staralfur, Agaetis Byrjun and Von.
Heima is the first chance to see Sigur Rós live on DVD.
