Yesterday, Icelandic band Sigur Rós live streamed a 24-hour broadcast event titled “Route One” that was shown globally via YouTube. Today, they’ve shared a slightly disturbing music video for a new song titled “Óveður” which translates roughly to “Storm” or “Bad Weather” in English. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube. Be warned that the video is NSFW.

Directed by Jonas Åkerlund and filmed in the town of Grindavík, Iceland, we follow the adventures of a mentally disturbed woman and her pet dog. She stumbles around in a playground before ending up in a bar. What seems like an ordinary crowd of people turns into a nightmarish scene of sorts, with the woman happily dancing around a fire. It’s strange and sure to evoke some sort of emotion.
