About this track

A.k.a. “Vaka” is the first track from Sigur Rós’ third full-length album ( ).
Like all the 8 tracks in the album it is sung in “Vonlenska” or “Hopelandic” (Which consists of meaningless syllables and resembles scat singing.) and has no official title.

The music video was directed by Floria Sigismondi, it shows a post-apocalyptic world in which children, attending school, get ready to go outside and play. The children, after having their ears and mouths inspected by the faculty, putting on many layers of clothes as well as ominous gas-masks, exit the school building and emerge to a yard covered in black ash, which falls from the sky like snow. The children play in the ash, throwing it at one another and making snowmen out of it as well as roughhousing with each other, causing one of the kids to lose her gas mask. Her classmates gather around her as she falls to the ground and eventually closes her eyes. The video won the “Best Video” award at the 2003 MTV Europe Music Awards in Edinburgh, Scotland.
