I swear there must be something in the Icelandic water because the number of talented musicians that come from there is quite high! And Ásgeir is no exception to that (somewhat made up) rule. Have a listen to the beautifully haunting and melancholy ‘Dreaming‘ below:
Another stunning track is ‘Going Home’ which is backed with new song ‘Dreaming’ and will be released on 7th April. Following on from that will be another new song, ‘Here It Comes’ which will be made available as an exclusive 7” picture disc for Record Store Day on April 19th.
He is a big star in Iceland due to his first release becoming an overnight sensation after breaking all records to become Iceland’s fastest and biggest selling debut album by a home grown artist – outselling Björk and Sigur Rós’ debuts. It is so good to see that the UK is now aware of Ásgeir and his musical talent and after his sol out show at London’s Union Chapel coming up I’m sure his popularity will continue to grow.
