Boy Lilikoi: Jónsi

For those of you who read this blog, you’re already fully aware that one of my favourite artists is Björk. Her sound is hyper-morphic and does things to the listener that is borderline self-indulgent, but completely native and fearless. She embodies the spirit, passion, and raw earnestness found in the type of poetry that I love. In that same vein, I found Jónsi — you might call him Venus as a boy.

From the same tundra and propane as his musical twin sister, Björk, Jónsi’s sound is frosty, crystalline. It’s got the power of an ice god with the innocence of a pixie — all the qualities that make Björk such a fascinating musical specimen. As the voice and guitar behind the ethereal Sigur Rós, he managed to electrify the atmosphere and give the space he inhabited purpose.
