Sigur Ros is an Icelandic post-rock band with melodic, classical, and minimalist elements. The band is known for its ethereal sound, and frontman Jonsi Birgisson's falsetto vocals and use of bowed guitar. In January 2010, the band announced that they will be on hiatus until further notice in order to pursue solo careers and to spend time with their families.

Their name is Icelandic wordplay: while the individual words Sigur and Ros mean, respectively, Victory and Rose, "Victory Rose" wouldn't be grammatically correct; the name is actually borrowed from Jonsi's younger sister Sigurros, who was born the same day as the band was formed, and then split into two words. They soon won a record deal with the local Sugarcubes-owned record label, Bad Taste. In 1997, they released Von and in 1998 a remix collection named Von brigoi. This name is also Icelandic wordplay: Vonbrigoi means "disappointment", but Von brig�i means "variations on Von".
