About Ný Batterí

"Ný batterí" (Icelandic for "new batteries") is a song by Sigur Rós, released as the second single from their album Ágætis byrjun in May 2000. The first track is an extended brass intro for "Ný batterí", followed by the title track. "Bíum bíum bambaló" is a traditional Icelandic lullaby, while "Dánarfregnir og jarðarfarir" was a theme used in Iceland for death announcements on radio. The third and fourth tracks also appear on the Angels of the Universe soundtrack. The cymbal used in "Ný batterí" was found on a street in downtown Reykjavík. The instrument was bent and had apparently been driven over. However, they liked the way it sounded and wrote the song from there.

Heftur með gaddavír í kjaftinum sem blæðir mig
Læstur er lokaður inn í búri
Dýr nakinn ber á mig
Og bankar upp á frelsari
Ótaminn setur í ný batterí

Og hleður á ný
Og hleður á ný
Og hleður á ný
Og hleður á ný

Við tætum tryllt af stað
Út í óvissuna
Þar til að við rústum öllu og reisum aftur

Aftur á ný
Aftur á ný
Aftur á ný

Aftur á bak þar sem við ríðum
Aftur með gaddavír
Í kjaftinum sem rífur upp gamalt gróið sár
Er orðinn ryðguð sál
Rafmagnið búið
Mig langar að skera
Og rista sjálfan mig á hol 
En þori það ekki
Frekar slekk ég á mér
Aleinn á ný
