Von (Icelandic pronunciation:, Hope) is the debut studio album by Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, released on 14 June 1997 by Smekkleysa Records. Production lasted over two years, and the end result sounded significantly different from the original recordings. The band considered scrapping the final result, but decided not as it would have made the process too long. In exchange for recording time, Sigur Rós painted the studio they recorded in.

Sigur Rós are an Icelandic avant-rock band from Reykjavík, active since 1994. Known for their ethereal sound, frontman Jónsi's falsetto vocals, and the use of bowed guitar, the band's music incorporates classical and minimal aesthetic elements. Jón Þór "Jónsi" Birgisson (guitar and vocals), Georg Hólm (bass) and Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson (drums) formed the group in Reykjavík in January 1994

In exchange for recording time, Sigur Rós painted the studio they recorded i. .Von was originally released in Iceland to moderate critical acclaim, but went relatively unnoticed abroad. In the first year following the release, Von sold only 313 copies in Iceland. Following the band's popular international releases, Ágætis byrjun and ( ), it was re-released in the United Kingdom in September 2004, and in the United States a month later. In December 2005, Von and Ágætis byrjun were declared platinum albums in Iceland, signifying domestic sales of over 5,000

Before Sigur Ros won the inaugural Shortlist Prize in 2001 for Agaetis Byrjun, they composed another album that would have met the award's criteria. Fewer than 500,000 copies sold? Hell, Von initially printed less than 500. A shining example of sacrosanct iconoclasm? Truly. Naturally, Von kicks off with a bold mission statement: "Sigur Ros", which is purposefully stagnant and entirely too long. At more than nine minutes in length, the track is an ambient impasse, a slow-moving mass of nothing much. Imagine the nebulous prelude of Agaetis Byrjun opener "Intro" stretched to 10 times its original length and without a tension-breaker like "Sven-G-Englar" to empty into.

Sigur Rós was formed in 1994 in Reykjavík, Iceland, by singer and guitarist Jón Þór Birgisson, bassist Georg Hólm and drummer Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson. Sigur Rós released their debut album, Von, in 1997 with Smekkleysa Records. It failed to chart, selling 313 copies in its first year of release, but was certified platinum in 2005 by Iceland's record industry association. Von brigði was released in 1998 and features remixes of tracks from Von. Only one track, "Leit af lífi", was new to the album

as of 2012 sigur ros have released six albums, plus one remix album (von brigði - recycle bin). the first album, recently given a worldwide release for the first time, is called von (hope). frequently unrecognisable from the bulk of their subsequent work, von is an experimental and ambient work. the band really found their feet with their second album, the masterpiece that is ágætis byrjun (a good beginning). the album was originally released only in iceland, but was discovered by brighton's fatcat records, who snapped the band up and released the album in the uk in august 2000.

Listen free to Sigur Rós – Von (Sigur Rós, Dögun and more). Von (Icelandic pronunciation:, Hope) is the debut album of Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós released in 1997. In December 2005, Von and Ágætis byrjun were declared platinum albums in Iceland, signifying domestic sales of over 5,000

Remixes of songs from Sigur Rós's first album, 'Von'. The title is actually a play on words in Icelandic, it is formed from the first album's title plus part of the word 'tilbrigði', meaning 'variation'. Incidentally, the resulting title, 'Von brigði', means 'disapointment'. Released in a Digipak. The last track of this album is interesting for more than one reason. It started out as a remix of a song from the band's first album (Von) but ended up being reworked so much that it's like a whole new composition altogether. This is also the only known remix by Sigur Rós and their only song that can be classified as drum & bass. It was the only song from this album that recieved air-time on local radio stations.
