Riceboy Sleeps

Biography

Riceboy Sleeps is an artistic collaboration between Jón Þór Birgisson (singer for the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós) and his friend Alex Somers (of Parachutes). Not only do they make visual art, but they also create ambient music. The music tends to be more ethereal and experimental than that of Sigur Rós. This initial project name has migrated from artist moniker to the album title for their first release as Jónsi & Alex.
