Default Sigur Růs... Genre?? Sub genre?

This album makes my whole world taste like daffodil daydream. I need to know what sub genre this is, so I can find specifically similar artists... Thanks in advance!

Sigur Růs: Takk... [full album]

I'm horrible at genres but they're from Iceland. That sound is very popular in Iceland so I would check out other bands from there. Olafur Arnalds is one to check out.

Nimrod was actually brilliant and ruthless; you really need to work on your derisive ad hominem attacks.

And I am aware that "post rock" is a genre, I simply was asking what are the qualifications that place Sigur Růs in that genre, and whether simply searching for other "post rock" artists will actually yield the results I am seeking.

Okay, well in that case I would definitely try, as Exo said, looking for other Icelandic acts. You could also try looking for bands who are considered both post-rock and dream pop, as that's what makes Sigur Ros' sound unique to other post-rock acts, in my opinion at least.

Gotcha. I'm not surprised as I find myself increasingly drawn to Scandinavian culture. They also produce better Americana than we Americans do. And better-looking men lol.
