Sigur Rós have recently announced a new “inclusive and free digital experience”, Heimr.
The band announced the new community via their Instagram, giving fans “free and permanent” access to an official Discord.
“The Heimr community will be a space that evolves over time, and relies upon your input as much as ours,” they explain. “As a member, you will be the first to receive upcoming announcements, have exclusive access to community benefits, and be able to engage in conversation that brings them together around the music, energy, and community that makes our fanbase special.” They added that the “central Discord hub will be the first layer in an ongoing experiment, one that only works with your active participation.”
Members will get a unique digital pass, a Gilngur, which will live on Polygon, a “decentralised data storage system on a low-carbon impact blockchain”.
