Hallmarks of the band's sound include: a wall of guitars, keyboards and violins, Jónsi's high-pitched, [[CocteauTwins Liz Fraser]]-sounding falsetto voice, use of bowed guitar, frequent use of a [[SingingSimlish made-up nonsense language]] named "Vonlenska" ("hopelandic"), dramatic crescendos and dynamics, and success despite the fact that most of their audience most likely doesn't understand a lick of their lyrics. Yes, they're ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome that good]]''.

* EpicRocking: Frequent. ''Takk...'' and ''Með suð'' were the first albums to include more songs of a reasonable 3-5 minute length. "Untitled #8 (Popplagið)" deserves special mention though: the entire 12-minute song is basically one big crescendo.

** [[LuckyCharmsTitle ( ) ]] is completely made up of Vonlenska; the lyrics are made up of the following phrase, and various permutations of it: You xylo. You xylo no fi lo. You So. For [[EpicRocking an hour, twelve minutes and 5 seconds.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Von''.

to:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Von''. The album is a series of drones and sound experiments, sprinkled with heavily reverberated, Cocteau Twins-esque dream pop.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''Ágætis byrjun'' and, to a lesser extent, ''( )'' could certainly be seen as this, especially as they codified the sound the band is known for today.
