Heard of slow TV, the phenomenon of an uninterrupted broadcast in real time? Normally it involves travelling or the art of watching something being made- but what if you could combine the two along with one of Iceland's best loved bands?

Sigur Ros (you'll recognise them from this song) are currently live-streaming their slow broadcast of the ring road in Iceland, Route 1. They started at the time of summer solstice yesterday and have been travelling anti-clockwise around the island, passing many of the country's well-known geographical wonders. So far we've seen Vatnajokull, Jokulsarlon, and the east name it, they'll have passed it!

Accompanying the band is a moment-by-moment soundtrack generated by Sigur Ros' music (both released and unreleased). If you have a moment free and want to have the most immersive coffee break ever, why not plug in your headphones and pop their live-stream on full screen? They're nearly finished but you can watch back at any point- just sit back, relax and be transported to the most peaceful country on Earth!
