"Ísjaki"-Sigur Rós

This is the newest song released from Sigur Rós’ upcoming album Kveikur. I immediately fell in love with it. I’ve been really curious about this album, especially since Kjartan is no longer a part of the band, and I’m so excited about the direction they’re going in. Sigur Rós has once again created something completely incredible and otherworldly, something that makes me feel like I’m floating away and coming back to earth all at the same time. I did my best to translate the lyrics from the video they posted earlier today, and doing so made me appreciate this song even more. Everything about this is gorgeous and I cannot wait until June when I can hold this album in my hands and listen to it on repeat for days on end.

Þú vissir af mér
‘Eg vissi af þér
Við vissum alltaf að þetta myndi enda
Þu missir af mér,
‘Eg missi af þér
Missum báða fætur undan okkur
Nú liggjum við á
Öll ísköld og blà
Skjálfandi á beinum, hálfdauðir úr kulda
Ísjaki

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki
Þú ert ísilagður
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið
Ísjaki

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki
Þú ert ísilagður
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið 

Þú kveikir í mér,  
‘Eg kveiki í þér 
Nú kveikjum við bál, brennisteinar 
Loga 
Það neistar af mér, 
Það neistar af þér
Neistar af okkur, brennum upp til 
Ösku

Ísjaki

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki 
Þú ert ísilagður 
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið 
Ísjaki 

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki
Þú ert ísilagður
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið 

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki 
Þú ert ísilagður
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið 

You knew of me
I knew of you
We always knew that this would end
You missed me
I missed you
We lost both feet from under us
Now we lay
Ice-cold and blue
Our bones shivering, half-dead from cold
Iceberg

You never say anything, you’re an iceberg
You are ice-covered
You are silent as the grave and hiding behind

I light you on fire, we light a bonfire
Sulfur burns
I’m sparking, you’re sparking
We are sparking
Burning to ashes

Iceberg

You never say anything, you’re an iceberg
You are ice-covered
You are silent as the grave and hiding behind an
Iceberg

You never say anything, you’re an iceberg
You are ice-covered
You are silent as the grave and hiding behind 

You never say anything, you’re an iceberg
You are ice-covered
You are silent as the grave and hiding behind
