Video: Sigur Rós – “Leaning Towards Solace” Short Film (Feat. Elle Fanning & John Hawkes)

Sigur Rós, the Icelandic band with the always gorgeous but usually non-pronounceable song-title names (I dream of the day I can pronounce my favorite Sigur Rós song “Inní mér syngur vitleysingur” – asking for a friend) is back with visuals in a short film titled “Leaning Towards Solace” featuring two of their songs “Dauðalogn” and “Varúð.” Starring the cooler Fanning sister Elle Fanning as a sad ballet dancer and John Hawkes as the dubious father, the film is pretty breathtaking. Stunning atmospheres and a surprising ending make this film fully worthy of 12 minutes of your time.
