Watch: Sigur Rós Pro-Nudism ‘Seraph’ Video (Maybe NSFW)

Written by Brayden Darke on September 14, 2012

This is a new clip from Sigur Rós’ Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, where the band commissioned a dozen film makers to make them clips for their songs purely from what they hear in their head when they listen to the songs.

Incorporating two tracks Rembihnútur and Ekki múkk to form one clip titled Seraph, Dash Shaw and John Cameron Mitchell, the creators, have composed an animation-based film that can be taken as a little ‘pro-nudism’ in one way, but more likely the effect on our own choice of freedom being squashed by those around us.

The clip starts out with a boy who is playing in the garden and decides to ‘nude up’ while drawing in the sand. His father spots him and decides to give him a religious lesson on why naked flesh is a bad thing in the eyes of God. The next time we see him, he’s getting picked on by a bunch of nudists who don’t tolerate him wearing clothes one bit.

The kid just can’t win can he, and eventually turns to a life of cutting himself regularly and committing violent crime. I’m not sure if it’s all supposed to be a metaphor for something, but it goes to show exactly what the point of the ‘Valtari’ Mystery Film Experiment is all about. Taking the Icelandic band’s ethereal songs and finding your own interpretation for them.

Sigur Rós will be in Australian this November touring on the Harvest Festival lineup.
