The Icelandic band Sigur Rós shared a twenty year old concert recording. It was recorded at Icelandic Opera which is a famous place in Iceland. It has been 20 years since they performed at that concert. The band announced the old recording on social media like that:

Sigur Rós – Svefn-g-englar (Live at Íslenska Óperan, 1999) – Listen via link in bio – it was 20 years ago this june, sigur rós played the íslenska óperan in reykjavík, debuting a record that would launch them on the world stage and have writers ask, “is there any other music like this?”. svefn-g-englar was the first song to be released from “the last great record of the 20th century”, and was a word-of-mouth phenomenon, led by jónsi’s keening voice and a submarine sonar sound. this never-before-heard recording has been mixed and mastered from the original Icelandic radio recording.
