Sophie Hopes, frontwoman of Perth alt-rockers Tired Lion, joins host Jeremy Dylan in the midst of their Splendour in the Grass performance to talk about her love for Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Rós and their hit 2005 album ‘Takk…’
Sophie talks about the non-obvious influence of the band on her own music, why she turns to the album when her life takes a downward turn, making up her own meanings for the Icelandic lyrics, why part of the album is sung in a made-up language and why she’s never seen Sigur Rós live.
