"Liminal is a musical thread that binds us together"
Sigur Rós have debuted an ‘endless’ ambient playlist, titled ‘Liminal’.

Carrying the same name as the band’s ‘soundbaths’ in Los Angeles and Reykjavik, Jonsi and long-term collaborators Alex Somers and Paul Corley will be adding to the project “frequently and endlessly”.

“Sigur Rós played live a lot during the last two years,” says frontman Jónsi. “And inevitably you end up playing the rockier, more focussed songs, which means that loads of other stuff gets ignored. ‘Liminal’ tries to do something different. It’s just me, Paul and Alex in a dark room manipulating and mucking around with recordings, FX and vocals. We play and sing sparsely and focus on the atmosphere coming together. There’s a sound-reactive light sculpture and everyone can sit or lie down. It’s all very cosy and people seem to like it.”

“Liminal is a musical thread that binds us together; the sounds that we all found inside of ourselves from a pretty young age: a music that is patient,” say Alex Somers of the concept behind the playlist. “Sounds unfold in front of you and momentarily offer to show the world from a different angle.”
