Artist of the week: Ásgeir
One of Iceland’s most popular voices Ásgeir released his highly anticipated new album ‘Afterglow’ on 5th May, 2017 via One Little Indian Records. Renowned for his silky, falsetto vocal, the musician has previously drawn comparisons to Bon Iver, James Blake and Kings of Convenience.
His Icelandic debut, ‘Dýrð í dauðaþögn’, became the fastest selling debut from a home-grown artist in Iceland, outselling Björk and Sigur Rós, and is now owned by over 10% of the entire Icelandic population.
Follow up to his hugely successful English debut 'In The Silence', 'Afterglow' pushes the boundaries and invites the audience to experience something new. Chattering electronic melodies, glitchy stop-start sections and warm synth swells are becoming an integral part of the artist’s work and give an interesting flavor to his musical imagery.
Ásgeir has been working in collaboration with producer Guomundur Kristinn Jónsson and his father, renewed poet Einar Georg Einarsson.
