Sigor Rós has never really been my cup of tea. It’s probably the made up language that drove me away the most. So the new page of singing in English that Sigor Rós frontman Jónsi has turned going into his solo album gave me no more excuses to not pay attention. “Boy Lilikoi” hooked me pretty quick but I was still uncertain of the whole project. The doubt that I have is quickly diminishing with each subsequent single that hits the intertubes though.
Jónsi is now playing his second single “Go Do” on YouTube (unfortunately it’s not embeddable so you’ll have to follow the link). The track is pretty straight forward as far as intonation and tone go but the layering that he puts into every second of song is mind boggling. I could probably listen to this track 100 times and still hear something different each time.
