Great song… too bad Jimmy couldn’t take the time to figure out how to pronounce their name properly. A little cringe worthy

Cool song, I think the guitar with a bow thing is pretty gimmicky. There’s 3
other people on stage with actual bowed instruments. Otherwise, good song.

The bowed guitar has been a part of there music since they began back in the early 90’s. It is a major part of their ethereal sound, if you listen to any of their music its usually prevelant in the background, sometimes it is at the forefront of the music, particularly in varud from their last album Valtari; it is not a gimmick.
