Iceland may not be a dystopian society, but having seen its mysterious and otherworldly sights up and close personal, I’d venture to say it’s the closest thing to a futuristic, alien landscape. It comes as no surprise, then, that one of the country’s finest exports, Sigur Rós, make music that almost seems tailor-made for a film like Ridley Scott’s dark 1982 Sci-Fi classic, Blade Runner.

Here, in a brilliant mash-up/tribute, Philipp Acker, a.k.a. Schambess, uses Sigur Rós’ own “All Right” to soundtrack a number of the movie’s most crucial moments. The song, which is off the band’s 2008 album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, gives each scene a more heightened sense of despair and anguish. Even if you’ve watched the Harrison Ford flick 10 times over, this new clip might just make you see it in a whole new way. Warning: There are spoilers.
