Reykjavík alternative band Low Roar has just made a mesmerizing cover off a Arcade Fire classic. Highly recommended.

And if the snow buries my,
my neighbourhood.
And if my parents are crying
then I’ll dig a tunnel
from my window to yours,
yeah a tunnel from my window to yours.
You climb out the chimney
and meet me in the middle,
the middle of the town.
And since there’s no one else around,
we let our hair grow long
and forget all we used to know,
then our skin gets thicker
from living out in the snow.

You change all the lead
sleepin’ in my head,
as the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn.

Then we tried to name our babies,
but we forgot all the names that,
the names we used to know.
But sometimes, we remember our bedrooms,
and our parent’s bedrooms,
and the bedrooms of our friends.
Then we think of our parents,
well what the hell ever happened to them?!

You change all the lead
sleepin’ in my head to gold,
as the day grows dim,
I hear you sing a golden hymn,
the song I’ve been trying to sing.

Purify the colours, purify my mind.
Purify the colours, purify my mind,
and spread the ashes of the colours
Over this heart of mine!

Listen to formidable *** ”The Call” by Ruu Campbell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhOlpjHy014

I heard you in the wind with my face toward the sun,
sparrows danced above my head and dived on their way home.
Be careful what you wish for,
'cos one day she will come,
like the day when I saw you and my past was gone.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
Down by the water, all the lights surround me.
I thank you for the pleasure, all the treasures I have seen.
She whispered in my ear,
"You won’t always know I’m there"
I said all I can I give you and all I am I share.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
Hear my call -
I want it all.
Roses in the wind, bridge from falling in,
may not always know you’re there,
but all I am I share, with you.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
