Way more flexible than Shia LeBeouf

Sigur Ros debuts another sensuous tale of limber lovers, a short film set to its "Valtari" track off its album of the same name. Directed by Black Dog Films' Christian Larson, who happens to be a dancer himself, the video happens upon a man and a woman who writhe through a dusty old warehouse, literally becoming entwined in each other once their paths cross. The dancing lovers is a familiar scenario, like one we saw in the band's Fjogur Piano video directed by Tool's Alma Har'el. It starred Shia LeBeouf slithering alongside his lover in a dysfunctional, addiction-addled relationship. In the latest video, however, the feats both dancers perform are downright tantrobatic.

Both films came out of an initiative the band launched, The Valtari Mystery Film experiment, in which the band gave a dozen filmmakers a modest budget to create as they would like to create, without the restrictions of the typical music video approval process.
