Upon waking up to the complete surprise and joy of a new collaboration effort between Sigur Rós’ Jónsi and Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser, I immediately put on my headphones and lucky Cocteau Twins tee. Jónsi has released the single “Cannibal” from his forthcoming album Shiver, out October 2 on Krunk Records. Once described as “the voice of God”, Fraser’s angelic vocals highlight the atmospheric nature of Jónsi’s ethereal instrumentation. The project is a match made in heaven.

“When Sigur Rós was starting, we were always compared to Cocteau Twins and I really didn’t like that. I hated being compared to anybody,” Jónsi remarked about the song. “Then I got really into Cocteau Twins like two or three years ago. They’re so good. I understood the comparison then.”
