The young Icelandic artist returns to his roots with a supremely beautiful acoustic third album. A buzz of lightning from another world that rumbles even louder on stage.
First, let’s thank his body for failing him when he used to practice javelin on the beach in the north of the island (he still holds the national record in the sport).

He learned to love his fragile voice, exploit his heartrending sense of melody and even resolved to translate his songs into English (thanks to the multilinguist John Grant) to reach a wider audience. Ásgeir is a pure product of the Icelandic scene, and don’t count on us to break that image: Seeing him on stage, you’ll cry as you listen to a language you don’t understand, you’ll daydream nestled in a carpet of virgin moss and communicate silently with the elves…
