‘Animal Arithmetic,’ the second single off of Jónsi‘s debut solo album ‘Go,’ is essentially gleeful, barely contained musical chaos. There’s so much going on, musically, that it really shouldn’t work, and you’re left to marvel at how he manages to combine the percussion, the strings and his rapid-fire lyrics about mundane daily tasks in such a beautiful way (“wake up, comb my hair / making food disappear”.) And as the song turns the mundane into the spectacular, so does the video: it flashes between soft-focus closeups of the instruments and of Jónsi’s mouth as he sings, and somehow manages to be frantic and relaxing simultaneously. Amazing.
Jónsi is hitting the UK for a short tour in September before touring the US in October and November. Details of the UK tour can be found in our previous tour announcement post.

England has Glastonbury, Ireland has Electric Picnic, Denmark has Roskilde. And France has Rock en Seine. We’ve been given the heads-up about a contest to win a pair of 3-day tickets to this year’s sold-out rock festival just outside Paris, two camping tickets, and two Eurostar return tickets to get you and from to the event.
All you have to do is post a comment on what performer you’d most like to see at Rock en Seine on this Europe by Eurostar web page and you’re entered. The line-up is pretty incredible this year, including the likes of Massive Attack, Paolo Nutini and TGTF favourites Kele, Two Door Cinema Club and the Temper Trap. Entries must be submitted by 12 August 2010, and entrants must be at least 18 years old, UK residents, and able to travel from London to Paris 27 August 2010. Good luck!
This contest is now closed.
After the cut: the full line-up for this year’s Rock en Seine.
