    If some of the music playing beneath Black Mirror’s “Hang the DJ” episode sounded recognizably ethereal, that’s because they came from the Icelandic dream weavers of Sigur Rós. Alex Somers, a frequent collaborator of the band’s frontman, Jónsi, helmed the episode’s soundtrack and culled two new songs from the outfit.

    The first, “Match”, is an ambient track that begins with a rich, sumptuous strain that eventually gives way to something much more ominous. At nearly five minutes, “End” is the soundtrack’s longest song, a patient, peripatetic one that culminates with a rousing bout of percussion and Jónsi’s effervescent vocals. Listen to both tracks below.

    In November, Sigur Rós announced a series of exclusive, limited edition vinyl releases, which included a compilation of unreleased solo electronic recordings from Jónsi.
