Sigur Rós are really trying to get a monopoly going on the whole soothing experience. Moving on from their gloriously emotive music, the Icelandic band is tackling your nose with their new signature candle. Via Pitchfork:
The smoky, slightly briny smell of a flotsam campfire on a distant black beach under a wan midnight sun. And, most recently, the smell of Sigur Rós’s studio, while they go about the quasi-mystical business of making the magic happen. Specially developed to the band’s olfactory specifications, this candle burns for 35 evocative hours of “instant Iceland”, or something like that.
“It’s called the “Varðeldur candle,” named after a track from Valtari.” Hot or not? Well, it’s obviously hot, but is it cool? Nevermind. Anyway, not the weirdest thing they’ve ever done.
