NERD BONUS: Sigur Ros frontman, Jónsi Birgisson, also stripped down “Time To Pretend” for a recent BBC Radio 1 session. It might have been a byproduct of that song’s production values or mammoth hook, but I always had trouble hearing the lyrics. Not the case here. Jonsi’s version is simply falsetto and piano, a gorgeous indication that in addition to really sophisticated melodies, there’s fantastic lyrical sentiment laced throughout as well.
More Jónsi to come right here.
