Sigur Rós' Jónsi is set to release a solo album this coming October and has shared a new single from the record featuring Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins.
"Cannibal" is the third single from the upcoming solo album from Jónsi, his first since his 2010 debut album Go. What starts off rather slow, gradually builds into a stunning dream-pop explosion propelled forward by the illustrious vocals of Jónsi and Fraser. “When Sigur Rós was starting, we were always compared to Cocteau Twins and I really didn’t like that. I hated being compared to anybody,” Jónsi said in a statement about the song. “Then I got really into Cocteau Twins like two or three years ago. They’re so good. I understood the comparison then.” A slow burn of a track, the melody slowly moves into a groove that sparkles before climaxing into a shimmering fantasy. Together, their voices seem nearly impeccable and feel like a true match made in heaven (or Las Vegas).
