All alright - Sigur Rós
All alrightMeð suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust post-rock ambient icelandic beautiful alternative
"All Alright" is the eleventh and final track on Sigur Rós' 2008 album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. It is the band's first English-language track. Its overall atmosphere is very soft and relaxed, yet moody: over a sparse instrumentation of piano and brass - horns, trumpets and trombones, all played at a low volume - vocalist Jón Þór "Jónsi" Birgisson sings the first half in a normal vocal range, then he goes into his trademark falsetto for the second half. No effects are used throughout the track, except for some reverb on the piano. The song's subject matter, according to the unofficial transcript of the lyrics, by fans, is Jónsi's relationship with his English-speaking boyfriend, the lyrics being written in English as a form of communication with him on a very personal level. In the first part of the lyrics, the singer is apparently admitting having betrayed his partner with someone else and he is begging him to be forgiven ["I want him to know/what I have done"]; in the second (falsetto) part, he expresses his desire to be in harmony with his partner once again, using references to birds, and to birdsong as a metaphor for love.
Sigur Rós are an Icelandic post-rock band. The name is derived from the name of lead vocalist Jónsi Birgisson's little sister, Sigurrós. They hail from the same creative and vibrant Icelandic music scene as múm and Amiina. They released their first ever foray into film-making with their tour documentary, Heima in late 2007. Jón Þór Birgisson (Jónsi), Georg Hólm, and Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson formed the group in Reykjavík, Iceland in August 1994. Show more ...
